Functional and internationally recognised open innovation platform for students and companies
In Demola, university students develop product and service demo concepts together with companies and create new solutions to real-life problems. Demola provides an inspiring atmosphere of creative co-creation and new learning opportunities for students and professionals of different universities and organisations. The immaterial rights of the results stay with the multidisciplinary student teams. Companies can then purchase the rights or license the products or services from them. Demola also creates new spinoff companies around the innovations.
