NI UK and Ireland offers grants for SMEs

10 March 2010

National Instruments UK and Ireland is encouraging micro, small and medium sized enterprises in embedded development, announcing a grant programme. The grants, of anything up to £25,000, will cover software, support and training.

Starting in 2009, National Instruments UK and Ireland began offering very low cost training and certification to unemployed scientists and engineers to help them develop skills to aid in finding employment.

Now, grants will be awarded to select SMEs that are evaluating the NI platform as a component of their devices. The goal of the new 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 is committed to supporting innovation," said Robert Morton, managing director. "Through this grant programme, National Instruments is supporting scientists and engineers based in the UK and Ireland who are developing innovative solutions to the grand challenges the world faces in energy, sustainability and healthcare.”

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. Visit to learn more about the grant programme and download the application.
