TED (short for: Technology Entertainment Design) is an annual event that brings unique ideas to the stage. During this independently organized event, invited speakers from all over the world are eager to present their ideas from various disciplines, which are to serve as the driving force for further innovations in order to shape the future. Afterwards the talks are available online to inspire people around the world.
What’s behind TEDxTUWien
The original innovation meeting from the state of California is now celebrating its debut at TU Wien with the motto "Prime Mover". A "prime mover" is, in the technical sense, a driving machine that transmits energy from a source of energy into mechanical energy and thereby drives a vehicle. In the meant sense, this means people who have changed our society with their ideas.
