Student Innovations in Demola-projects

Demola Academy is an innovation-oriented platform where student groups work on project ideas given by partner companies. The teams working on the projects are cross-disciplinary and include students from several universities in Tampere. The teams have a mission to innovate and develop a working prototype of their idea.

This spring semester, Demola Tampere coached 23 project groups all the way to their Final Pitching Event at Mediapolis on 22.5.2014. It’s great that there were students from the Department of Pervasive Computing in 6 of these groups:

Pervasive Computing exchange student Daren Tuzi final pitching the project Liquid Software.

In the Final Piching Event, the top three projects were chosen and they pitched again in the New Factory Open in 27.5.2014. The selected teams (in the picture) were Gift of Gab, Liquid Software and Rule Breaker, and the grand winner was Rule Breaker.

The New Factory Open 2014 was a fabulous opportunity for presenting the best projects, networking, and also having a good time!

Thanks for Demola and all the students for the past semester! We’re looking forward to new projects in the autumn! And students, remember that you can also take the course Project Work on Pervasive Systems if you want more experience in software engineering projects!
