Uncharted – Navigating the Frontiers of Knowledge
The complexity of our systems is on the rise as our world is changing faster than ever. Ideas worth spreading can support this change in a responsible way with respect to the needs of present and future generations.
Ideas we never thought possible are now a reality. It is up to us to break away from the old and be brave enough to come up with novel approaches, transform threats into opportunities, raise awareness and educate our communities about the possibilities while focusing on thoughtful and sustainable solutions. The future is here, let’s make it bright!
A well-designed program leads you through two main sessions of exciting TEDxTUWien Talks and outstanding performances in the breathtaking Kuppelsaal at TU Wien.

What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged and today covers almost all topics – from science to business to global issues – in more than 100 languages.
What is TEDxTUWien?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxTUWien, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxTUWien event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. TEDxTUWien is was first held in 2017 at the University of Technology in Vienna (TU Wien). Since then a team of volunteers has organized multiple events with outstanding speakers, stunning performances, and immersive exhibitors.
