GE center eyes localized solutions

General Electric and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals launched the GE Innovation Center at Dhahran Techno Valley here yesterday.
The center, part of a $ 1 billion GE investment in the Kingdom, will focus on developing cleaner and more efficient energy solutions as well as sustainable and affordable health-care solutions.
The center, which is the result of an agreement signed by GE and the university in 2011, underlines the company’s commitment to cultivating a culture of homegrown innovation and R&D led by Saudi talent.
Featuring laboratories, training rooms and an interactive customer experience, the center displays GE’s expertise in advanced technologies and solutions.
It will be a place for GE and its partners to work together, share knowledge, collaborate and cocreate — thus building localized solutions.
