Second season of Demola Namibia kicks off!
Two companies, 2 challenges and 11 talents - The second season of Demola Namibia is on the roll!
The official Demola Namibia Kick-off event took place on the 22nd of April 2017 at the NCRST Innovation Hub. Talk about enthusiasm and passion! The selected talents looked so much the real deal and we can only hope for another successful season. The National Commission on Research, Science and Technology (NCRST) GM of Innovation, Technology and Development, Mr. Vincent Nowaseb, welcomed students to the Demola community and encouraged them to take the journey with the same enthusiasm and passion they showed on the kickoff day. With the quote from Albert Einstein "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them", the GM concluded and emphasised the need to think out of the box as the ingridient in this innovation ecosystem.
Student teams have already started working on their real challenges set by our project partners including companies like Keetmanshoop Municipality and the University of Tampere, Finland – we are looking forward to getting the season moving! During the three month project period, teams will turn ideas into concrete demos with the support of our facilitators and tested Demola tools and processes.
