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.

To keep the dialogue going, TED created TEDx – satellite events held around the globe year-round. Licensed by TED, a TEDx event provides local communities with an opportunity to bring people together to discuss ideas that change our world and share a TED-like experience.  

As a not-for-profit event, TEDxPatras cannot happen without the help of supporting partners. Be a part of this exciting event and foster the spread of innovative thinking. Whether such support be financial or “in kind”, there are lots of ways for you to join our team.
