The mission of the Planet NI program is to empower engineers in emerging countries to achieve sustainable prosperity by providing increased access to NI technology. The program focuses on nurturing local innovation through partnerships, as well as supporting entrepreneurs and organizations building solutions that contribute to the economic development of emerging nations.
NI offices around the world locally define and develop their Planet NI programs. The primary focus of the Planet NI program in Malaysia is to support local small and medium enterprises (SMEs), partner with innovation centers, and to support healthy and sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystems, by collaborating with developmental organizations.
National Instruments (NI) announced the establishment of the National Instruments Academy & Innovation Nucleus (NI-AIN), in collaboration with Technology Park Malaysia Corporation Sdn Bhd (TPM) and SME Corp. The NI-AIN innovation nucleus is geared towards enabling and supporting the building of a “Test and Measurement Innovation Hub” in the industrial corridors of Malaysia.
