What is a TEDx event?

A TEDx event is like a mini-conference where experts and enthusiasts come together to give short, engaging talks on various topics. Each talk lasts around 18 minutes or less. The goal is to share new ideas and inspire the audience. These events are organized by local volunteers and aim to create a space for community learning and discussion.

What language will TEDxTUBerlin be held in?

The event will be held in English.

What time will the event be?

The event is scheduled from 1 pm to 7 pm.

What can I expect at the event?

We'll kick off with a welcome session, followed by two talks. After that, there'll be a break, then another set of two talks. We'll have another break featuring a musical act from our DJ, followed by a break to mingle. We'll wrap up with two final talks and an end session.

What topics will be covered at TEDxTUBerlin?

The topics for the next event will cover a broad spectrum of subjects. We'll delve into using opera for software engineering, explore biases in childhood and how to combat them through games, discuss the importance of "The Bright Side of Stress," and even learn how potato chips can make us think about sustainability.

Is there going to be food and drinks available for purchase at the event?

Yes, we will have snacks and drinks available for purchase at the event. You can pay with PayPal.

Is this event only aimed at students as the name includes TU Berlin?

No, the event is not limited to students 😊. While most of our organizing team is from TU Berlin, the event is open to anyone interested in "ideas worth sharing." Everyone is welcome to join us!

The 2023 event has passed. Will there be a next event in the future?

A very strong YES on this one! We are wrapping up the past event and celebrating our team's achievement in creating an amazing event for over 250 TEDx-ers.
