How to implement Demola as a key component of the regional renewal programme?

Demola can be the core part of a regional renewal program or it can serve as a complementary part of a national revitalizing initiative. In cooperation with regional developers, companies in the region will be involved in the implementation of the program. This ensures the relevance and extensive utilization of futures insights in the strategic development and internationalization of companies. The program will increase the future resilience of the ecosystem by raising the level of discussions on the future and providing valuable information for use in the region's innovation and future work. The program will generate significant renewal capital for the region.
