National Instruments Announces Finalists for Northern European Awards

NI announced the finalists chosen for the Engineering Impact Awards, which is a technical application contest, showcasing the most innovative projects based on NI software and hardware. This prestigious event is to be held in the RSA house on the evening of the 28th of November. NI will commend and award these incredible engineers in the building in which Alexander Graham Bell first demonstrated the telephone: a pioneering application much like the work of these finalists.


A total of eight categories are competed for on the evening and attendees from all industries will be in present including press, partners and analysts. Several finalists will also be presenting their applications the next day at the NIDays graphical system design conference taking place in the Queen Elizabeth II, London.
