As part of the programme, Farnell is partnering with leading test suppliers including Tektronix, Keysight, Rohde & Schwarz, Fluke, NI and many more to offer exclusive discounts on a wide range of products.

Providing top-quality test equipment in laboratories plays a major role in enhancing the learning experience and preparing students for the real world. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on many educational institutions and non-profit organisations, and we made it a priority to provide the products they need at accessible prices in order to successfully execute future projects. We are very grateful for the support of our supplier partners who are participating in this programme.”

Schools, universities, and non-profit research centres can enter the product giveaway competition now and the winning project will be announced by Farnell in the New Year.
