DemolaDemoDay

The Demola Programme spring semester is soon to kick off

The University of Szeged joined the Demola International Innovation Network as the first university outside the capital, establishing it within the framework of its Virtus Enterprise Catalyst Program. The Demola Programme aims to create a young, open, multidisciplinary community that uses creative ideas and methods to solve real-world business challenges. University students are now expected to apply for the spring semester.

Demola is an open innovation platform where international project teams can work on real-world corporate challenges with the unique co-creation method for 8 weeks. Teams, jointly with corporate partners, develop the best possible solution to the business or industry problem companies submit. The results of the project work must be pitched by the team to the contracting company representatives. Since its launch in 2019, 6 student teams have successfully accomplished 4 case studies of 2 major companies.

Why enroll for a course?

  • You can work with company leaders on a real business challenge as a member of a multidisciplinary team and get 2 university credits for it.
  • You will all be equal team members, but the intellectual property rights (IPR) created during the project will remain yours, and the company will only be granted a non-exclusive right to license it.
  • As a student, you will learn the entrepreneurial spirit, the basics of teamwork and project-based work.
  • You become a member of an inspirational community.
  • You can stand out from the crowd of students, and the Demola project will embellish your resume perfectly.

SZTE Experience


AndiAndi Rahmat Saleh - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences - Ph.D. Studies

I’m a Ph.D. student from Indonesia and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship student. I first heard about the University of Szeged from the Tempus Foundation university list with excellent program descriptions, and it caught my eyes. My student life has been a pleasant one because of the beautiful environment, and TIK library facility. The teachers and staffs are accommodating, and my mentors and classmates also contributed to exploring the city with pleasant memories. The city is very affordable, and I live in a shared flat very close to the city center. In my free time, I engage in sporting activities or watch movies. My favorite spot is the Dugonics square, but my best attraction is the Tisza River. The University of Szeged is a beautiful experience for me, and I will recommend it to my friends. I am happy to be part of the University of Szeged.


PhuongPhuong Thu Tran - Faculty of Economics - Business Administration and Management

I live in Budapest, and I commute by train to Szeged every day. It’s not a huge distance for me, I got used to travelling back home. I study, watch the scenery or the people. Once I lost my wallet, and everyone around me tried to help. One of them offered to give me some money, another one offered to take me where I had to go. I love Szeged, Hungarians and nice, and I like the cuisine, though the spicy food is not spicy enough for my taste. I’m very happy to study here. At the Faculty of Economics, the program is practice-oriented, we get a lot of useful information and a lot of opportunities are offered by our professors.
