NI Announces Grant Programme For Small Businesses

National Instruments UK and Ireland has announced a grant programme to support micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in embedded development. In 2009, the company began offering low-cost training and certification to unemployed scientists and engineers to help them develop skills to aid in finding employment. Many advances in technology over the past 20 years have been developed by small entrepreneurial companies.

In recognition of this, National Instruments UK and Ireland is now offering grants for software, support and training to SMEs that are developing embedded devices in areas such as medical, energy and green engineering. The grant programme will award up to GBP25,000 in software, training and support to SMEs that are evaluating the National Instruments platform as a component of their devices.

The goal of the grant programme is to help these companies reduce the cost and complexity of development by providing them with technology such as the National Instruments Labview graphical programming environment. National Instruments UK and Ireland will accept applications throughout 2010. To apply for the programme, SMEs must provide documentation on the company and the project and participate in an interview.
