Introducing Demola Tampere
Demola Tampere is located at the New Factory innovation center in the historic cotton factory in the Finlayson area. This is where the Demola Network was launched in 2008. Today, Demola Tampere carries out annually some 100 projects with 450 students. 40 % of the students are international. The partner companies have licensed 80 % of the project outputs and recruited 15 % of Demola’s students.
Tampere is the largest inland city in the Nordic countries and a traditional center of industry and R&D. Today, the city is known for high tech, which can be found also in so-called traditional industries.
Every 5th person in Tampere is a student. There are about 40,000 university students and more than 34,000 vocational college or adult students.
Our brainpower in Tampere comes from our three university partners. Tampere University of Technology (TUT) has a strong tradition of research in the fields of natural sciences and engineering; University of Tampere (UTA) focuses on research and education on society, management and health; and Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK) focuses on technology, business, culture, and health and social welfare services.
