Draft supports development ideas of students and staff

The Draft application process is organized three times a year and about 20 teams get funding for testing and further developing their product and service ideas every year. Teams that have at least two members can apply. At least one team member must be a student, staff or faculty member of Karelia UAS, University of Eastern Finland or Riveria.
