Collaboration on new brewing innovation centre

Emerson (NYSE: EMR) announced on 9 April 2019 a collaboration with Colorado State University (CSU), USA, to build the Emerson Brewing Innovation Centre, where students will get hands-on experience using the latest automation technologies. Funded by a joint investment, the centre will serve as the main educational hub for the Fermentation Sciences and Technology programme and will reinforce advanced competencies for digital transformation as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) era continues to evolve the industry.

The CSU Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition attracts diverse, top-notch students to address the industry’s growing technology demand.

“Partnerships like these enable us to give our students experience with industry standards and help them prepare for the job market,” said Jeff Callaway, associate director of Fermentation Science and Technology at CSU. “The new centre will enhance our fermentation science academic programme while strengthening ties to the industry.”

The Emerson Brewing Innovation Centre will open this autumn in the Gifford Building on CSU’s main Fort Collins campus and feature two brewing systems that will allow students to gain experience using the latest real-world technologies driving innovation in the industry.
