What is a TEDx event?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDx events consist of a series of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations, and performances on a wide range of subjects. 


TEDxTUM is a platform for sharing ideas worth spreading. With support from one of the world’s most renowned universities, the Technical University of Munich, a team of about 50 students, alumni and volunteers aims to intellectually challenge and inspire local and international thinkers and doers by spreading innovative ideas and showcasing different perspectives.

TEDxTUM 2020 will take place on a Saturday at the end of November 2020 at the TUM campus in the center of Munich. It is a full-day event where 15 speakers and performers will present their ideas and arts on stage in front of an audience of 500 people. At TEDxTUM we believe in the power of human interactions and that is why there will be plenty of time for audience and speakers to interact with each other.
