Under the auspices of AUEB
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment and Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference and TEDGlobal — TED includes the award-winning TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading”. The program is designed to give communities, organisations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.
TEDxAUEB was an initiative of the students in Athens University of Economics and Business for the creation of the first TEDxUniversity in Greece in 2013. After the first, second, third and fourth successful events, TEDxAUEB is preparing the next annual event in 2017, driven by authenticity and creativity.
