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.

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

Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."


Imane_CherbiImane Cherbi - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

My name is Cherbi Imane and I am 23 years old from Algeria. I am spending my last semester at the University of Szeged Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Being an MA student of Applied Linguistics, University of Szeged offered me a chance to gain sufficient knowledge about my field of study. I choose the University of Szeged simply because it is a highly ranked academic institution both nationally and internationally; also because of the variety of programs that they have for international students. I love everything in Szeged: every corner of every street, I will always keep them in my heart. I take photos of the city when walking around and I am planning to launch a blog to promote this beautiful corner of Hungary among international students. People of Szeged are caring, always smiling and we are living peacefully together. I have never felt isolated or neglected. As a coffee lover, i always enjoy having my favorite type of coffee in different coffees in Szeged. Lookin for calmness and nature vibes, I would certainly walk by the Tisza river whenever I want.
