About TEDxRWTHAachen

We are working hard to bring to you an extraordinary, TED-like experience here in Aachen. Our team consists of about thirty motivated, local students of various disciplines who all share a common enthusiasm for TED's core values. Our overall goal is to organize regular TEDx events for our local community, featuring innovative and exciting contents worth spreading. For this purpose we founded a non-profit association, the TEDxClub RWTH Aachen e.V., which provides the basic organizational structure for our team.

About TED

About TED

TED is a non-profit organization devoted to spreading ideas worth sharing, usually in form of short, powerful talks at the annual conferences, bringing together interesting and impactful people to share what they are most passionate about. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, but has grown to cover almost all topics – from science to business to global issues to art – in more than 100 languages. Attendees have described the experience as “the ultimate brain spa” and “a journey into the future in the company of those creating it”. Past speakers include Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Sir Richard Branson and Bono. TED nowadays features a variety of annual events, reaching from the flagship TED conference over TEDGlobal and TEDWomen to TEDYouth. As they take in the program, attendees and speakers from vastly different fields can cross-fertilize and draw inspiration from unlikely places. This is the magic of TED.
