TEDx University of Edinburgh is an independently organised programme of local events that brings people together to share an experience similar to the multidisciplinary TED conferences.
TED is a set of global, multidisciplinary conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, formed to disseminate "ideas worth spreading".
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED created TEDx, which is a programme of local, self-organised events that brings people together to share a TED-like experience.
TEDx University of Edinburgh is organised in partnership between the University of Edinburgh, Innovative Learning Week, Global Academies, Beltane Public Engagement and Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA).
The first event took place in February 2013 and saw seven speakers from a wide range of disciplines giving informative, innovative and inspiring talks around the theme of Global Challenges, Grounded Solutions.
