Demola is the student innovation project platform with the biggest impact.
We bring project partners, universities and multidisciplinary student teams together to solve real-world challenges. Results are concepts, demonstrations and prototypes that show the real value and can be used e.g. as sales support, internal decision-making support or starting point for subcontracting work. Founded in 2008 in Tampere, Finland, currently Demola operates in 13 different locations worldwide.
Demola is a common activity of the City of Tampere and 3 universities (TUT, TAMK, UTA). Demola is open for all types of Project Partners (companies from startups to corporations, municipalities, associations).VISIT DEMOLA SITE
