More than 50 representatives of its regional stakeholders attended Emerson Automation Solutions’ recent workshop for applied research in the processed industries, at the Collaboration Center in its new headquarters in Dhahran Techno Valley, Saudi Arabia.

Emerson’s stakeholders included partner educational institutions, key customers, and government representatives, said a statement.
