Welcome to the EMEA Section:

Welcome to the section of the Fieldbus Foundation website that is dedicated to the news, activities and events within the EMEA region. 

Click on the tabs at the top of each EMEA page to navigate between this page and the pages dedicated to EMEA news and EMEA events.

Local language regional pages offer information about the EMEA region National Marketing Committees (NMC), their activities, news, events and documents. Just click on the country flag at the top of any EMEA page.

Foundation Technology in the EMEA Region:

The Foundation technology installed base is growing rapidly across Europe and the Middle East. According to Frost & Sullivan, sales of fieldbus systems in Europe will rise from their 2001 level of US $170.2 million to US $420.0 million in 2008.

In the Middle East, major installations including grassroots and modernisation projects have been undertaken at hydrocarbon processing facilities from Oman and Qatar, to Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

In response to this growing demand for Foundation technology, the EMEA Executive Advisory Council (EAC) was established in February 2005 and comprises senior executives from EMEA’s leading control and instrumentation companies. Dedicated to promoting the adoption of Foundation technology by automation equipment suppliers and end users, the EMEA EAC ensures the funding and availability of human resources to support regional fieldbus marketing activities across the EMEA region, including high level training, end user and engineering contractor events, trade shows, advertising and press activities.

The EMEA EAC’s directives are implemented by the Fieldbus Foundation’s EMEA Steering Committee and the National Marketing Committees throughout the region.
