And who will make innovators?
By definition an innovation is an idea and its implementation. What we mean by an idea is something that is a creative idea, something that redesigns something existing, something that is earth-shattering. Furthermore it is something than can be put into practice as creativity without implementation in itself does not involve a real innovation.
And what makes it so important for us?
When describing the environment around us the VUCA acronym can be used more and more often. This acronym was originally used by the military: Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous. It clearly shows that nowadays we have to hold our ground in such fields where the tried and tested methods are outrun, and new solutions have to be found to old and new problems alike in a very short time.
During our TEDx event you can have an insight into the different aspects of this process and the innovators’ activities. We would like to get an answer to the following questions:
We are convinced that innovation has become a widespread practice, most strikingly in the technical industries. We are searching for and introducing the innovations from the widest possible range, along with technology, putting an emphasis on art, fashion and humanities. We believe that innovation is more than salvation and we are going to show innovations undergoing continuous development on the TEDxMETU stage.

TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. 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 110 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
TED conferences with their thought-provoking and entertaining18-minute long or shorter presentations offer an incredibly intense and inspiring experience.
TED has totally changed the conference experience as it put the previous norm into a new dimension and it has evolved into probably the most exciting, the most requested and the most serious, non-professional conference in the world.
At TED conferences the presentations are recorded on a video which is available at TED.com after the event.
Loads of well-known and less-known performers have appeared on the TED stage so far, quite often giving an unconventional, thought-provoking and stimulating presentation: Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Elizabeth Gilbert, Philippe Starck, Alain de Botton, Isabel Allende, Gordon Brown, David Deutsch or Bono.
The audience of TED comes typically from a heterogeneous background who are open, intelligent, positive and socially active.
TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.” TEDx brings the spirit of TED to local communities around the globe via “rules and tools”. TEDx events are organized by passionate individuals who seek to uncover new ideas and the latest research in their local areas and spark conversations in their communities.
