DEMOLA Latvia is an international innovation challenge platform uniting students and leading brands of the country.
DEMOLA Latvia is an innovation platform under the umbrella of Riga Technical University and the University of Latvia. We cooperate with companies who submit challenges to be solved within our 12-week intense design thinking process by the most talented students who study in Latvia. At the end of the program, the company receives a solution or research of the specific challenge, developed by a multidisciplinary team of 5 students.

Demola was first introduced in Latvia in 2014 after a visit of the university and business representatives to Finland. During the first years of Demola Latvia, it was lead by IT Cluster (till 2017) and supported by the Ministry of Economics and Investment and Development Agency of Latvia.
In 2017, IT Cluster transferred the ownership of Demola Latvia to Riga Technical University and the University of Latvia.
Since 2019 Demola is supported by ERDF under "Student innovation grants programme".
