Dr. Kari Kankaala shares the experience of Demola, an open innovation platform and university-business collaboration model in Finland. Demola encourages student teams to create new products and services that directly seek solutions for specific firm and government problems. The Demola model presents opportunities for regions where the cooperation between the universities and the companies is infrequent, and the collaboration models outdated, or not in place.
