Demola’s mission

We believe that groundbreaking innovation is created only when people with passion and talent are interconnected across nations, cultures, and fields of expertise.

It means that innovation with true impact cannot be created in isolated and disconnected units. That is why we need a stronger ecosystem instead of bigger silos.

In a strong ecosystem, innovation is based on a fusion of ideas, skills, and perspectives. It requires novel ways to collaborate in an international network that brings together people and organizations from various fields.

We at Demola are building seamless Global ecosystem by promoting and developing efficient co-creation methods, driving a cultural change towards open innovation, and enhancing innovation competences both on individual and organizational levels.

About Demola

What is Demola?

In short, Demola is an international organization that facilitates co-creation of businesses, public sector & universities locally and internationally. To be more specific, Demola is…

an alliance that consists of various partners including universities, their faculties, researchers and students, as well as companies, and a growing number of Demola sites around the globe. Not only are we international, we are interdisciplinary.

a co-creation concept that is geared to solve real challenges and to explore the future. Every project has an outcome – be it a new concept, a demo, or a prototype. IPR is managed with industry-leading IPR and contract frameworks to balance the interest of co-creation parties and enable seamless further development and investments.

a process that is formatted and professionally facilitated. The Demola process ensures that the work is systematic and runs on schedule. This way, the work itself can be as creative as possible, but the process keeps things effective.

a framework that enables agile and continuous co-creation internationally. Each partner has a clear role, and the work is guided by to explore the futureally verified procedures. Contracts, intellectual property rights, licensing models, and other legal requirements are in place and meet international corporate standards and practices.
