Demola projects - Tampere University of Technology

Multidisciplinary, fresh perspectives on your project

Demola is the open innovation platform of the higher education institutions in Tampere. It offers companies a unique opportunity to develop and test their ideas together with students. Approximately 60 Demola projects are conducted each year in collaboration with students of Tampere University of Technology (TUT), the University of Tampere and Tampere University of Applied Sciences.

Demola projects are carried out to develop, among others:      

  • technological applications
  • services
  • digital media or games
  • social innovations
  • business concepts

Demola is an ideal choice for companies and organizations that are seeking multidisciplinary and fresh perspectives on their activities.         

The company provides a topic for a project that students typically work on for 3-4 months with support from a facilitator and the partner company. The result may be a demo or something else that validates the feasibility of the original idea. 

Demola projects are free of charge for companies. While the copyright to the resulting demo belongs to the students, the partner company can acquire the right to use the results. So far, some 75 per cent of the results have been licensed by partner companies.
