TEDxNorrköping Evenings for Curious Minds
TEDxNorrköping Events were during 2020 cancelled due to the
COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to be able to restart during 2021 in close cooperation with Campus Norrköping, Linköping University and
also with Norrköping Science Park involved. There will, as before, be a few evening events with
international, as well as national and local, speakers presenting ideas worth spreading in different areas. The slightly more informal
Salon Events will be directed more towards the profiles and activities within Campus Norrköping and normally take place in the afternoon.
The dates, the themes and the speakers will be advertised here when decided. Ideas and proposals are welcome!
General information about TEDxNorrköping.
The talks TED, Technology-Entertainment-Design, has gained an enormous prestige,
just growing from when the annual conferences started in its current form around 2005 with video recoded talks
freely available on the Internet. One of the most popular speakers was Hans Rosling, who passed away 2017. Since 2009
TED, has offered the opportunity to apply for licenses for "independently organized
local events" in the same spirit as the TED events.
TEDxNorrköping has emerged from a group of people involved in the
organization of The 13th International Conference on Thinking, ICOT-13, in Norrköping 2007. A conference
with about 1300 participants from more than 30 countries. The aims now are very similar: To offer an arena where people across
different sectors, disciplines, cultures, religions, ages, etc., can meet and share experience, views and ideas. To create a
meeting-place for people who don't normally meet. The substantial footprints from the conference 2007 have encouraged us to
initiate the TEDxNorrköping effort.
TED and TEDx talks are
recorded and uploaded to TED's own YouTube channel. The recording
of the Stanford professor Carol Dweck's TEDxNorrköping Talk,
The Power of Yet, has now gained over
11 million visits
on the Internet. Neither speakers nor organizers get any
fee at all for their contributions and efforts. However, many of the most coveted speakers are highly interested in being
given the opportunity to present their ideas and have their talks distributed for free via TED and Youtube.
Since 2011, there have now been 24 TEDxNorrköping events of different types,
