The organizations are partnering to bring cutting-edge scientific equipment, training and support to approximately 100 research projects with commercial promise and demonstrated long-term development impact in more than 80 countries over the next five years. This partnership is the first step in USAIDís effort to leverage the private sector in support of scientists in developing countries.

At the signing of the partnership agreement, Dr. Alex Dehgan, science and technology adviser to USAID administrator Rajiv Shah, said,ďThe lack of access to scientific equipment is a major impediment to research in the developing world. This partnership will help give scientists all over the developing world access to the tools that can help them unlock their potential to solve the great development challenges of our time.Ē

The USAID PEER Science program supports collaborative research by funding scientists in developing countries on a wide range of development-related topics, including food security, climate change, water, biodiversity, disaster mitigation, renewable energy and health. Working with National Science Foundation funded U.S. researchers, PEER plans to invest up to $100 million to accelerate science and technology research over the next several years.

NI designs, develops, manufactures, sells and supports system design software and modular hardware that engineers and scientists use in measurement, control and design applications in nearly every industry, from testing smartphones to launching spaceships. The partnership with USAID is possible through the companyís Planet NI program, which empowers engineers and scientists in emerging countries to achieve sustainable prosperity by providing increased access to the companyís technology.

ďNational Instruments is committed to nurturing local innovation and entrepreneurship by making engineering and scientific tools affordable, accessible and relevant to those focused on improving the socioeconomic development of their communities,Ē said Victor Mieres, NI vice president of sales and marketing, emerging markets, and chairman of the Planet NI advisory board. ďThis partnership expands the reach of Planet NI and increases the impact we can have on researchers in emerging markets.Ē
