The CEAA hosted the first annual stakeholder’s workshop at the KACST headquarters in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia from March 29th – 31st. The three day event was coordinated to create an opportunity for Stanford professors and students in conjunction with KACST faculty and researchers participating on the collaborative projects to present their current research results and technology developments to local stakeholders. These technically rich presentations discussed many different aspects of each project’s activities and future tasks at hand. In addition, the visiting Stanford professors hosted a number of lectures to meet in smaller groups and go into more technical details with regards to the project objectives. Some of the honorable guests that attended the event were high-ranking KACST officials, representatives from local ministries, university professors, scientific researchers and other government agents that participated in the event’s activities by asking questions and clarifying how local needs could be met with some of the expected project outputs.
