HP has a long heritage of innovating to apply technology to meet the needs of people and organizations. We develop new technologies, solutions, business models and processes to help customers have simpler, more valuable and trusted technology experiences in their lives and at work. Research and development (R&D) supports our business by inventing the next generation of technology products and solutions to meet customer needs.

We conduct R&D in support of HP's business strategy in core business areas such as imaging and printing, enterprise systems and storage management, personal computing, and mobility.
