National Instruments UK and Ireland is offering grants for software, support and training to micro, small and medium-sized companies developing embedded devices in areas such as medical, energy and green engineering.

Knowing that SMEs often have limited resources, National Instruments UK and Ireland has created a grant programme that will award up to £25,000 in software, support and training to selected 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. The National Instruments software and hardware platforms for graphical system design are ideal for accelerating the design, validation and implementation of new concepts.

'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.
