Demola provides an inspiring atmosphere of creative co-creation and new learning opportunities for students and professionals of different universities and organisations. In Demola students develop product and service demo concepts together with companies, and create new solutions to real-life problems. Demola also creates new spinoff companies around the innovations. During the first two years of activity over 100 digital service and product prototypes were developed and 95 per cent of these were claimed for business use.
We work on projects in the area of technology, services, digital media and games, social innovation, and business concepts with local impact and global market potential. Companies bring their project ideas for student teams to cultivate. Demola offers the teams the tools, and the teams design the solutions collaboratively. Results are honed into real products and services to be part of the companies’ operations or spawn new companies.
Demola is a value facilitator by providing:
Licenses to project results Experience of innovative product and service concepts Value-creating support and interactive processes to the open innovation activity Co-creation with the best talents and the community of the lead users Interface to key professors and researchers in Tampere University of Technology, University of Tampere and Tampere University of Applied Sciences.
