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 Africa is to support local small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The program also provides local universities and technology companies with cutting-edge lab equipment to train the next generation of engineers.
