Theme: Open Doors "Connecting & Sharing"

12:00am - 8:00pm JST
(UTC +9hrs)
Sendai, Miyagi

Since its inception in 1907, Tohoku University has been known for its ‘Open Door’ policy and was the first university to welcome foreign, and female, students within Japan.
Tohoku University continues to attract great minds from all over the world, and conducts high quality research. Our team believes that it is vitally important for the university to not only admit and teach students, and conduct research, but to also engage with the local community and to truly create a meaningful impact to our society.
TEDxTohokuUniversity, as individually organized branch of the famous TED Conference, is aiming at providing a platform, where ideas born in Tohoku university and Tohoku region can be shared to the wider audience, and to the world. Marking this year’s theme “Open Doors” and 110 anniversary of Tohoku University, we hope to emphasize the importance of “Connecting and Sharing” by making TEDxTohokuUniversity 2017 a place where members of the University and the local community can connect and share ideas, listen to inspiring stories and best practices within the community. With this event we hope to reach out from Sendai the world, and to teach future generations the important lessons we have learned today.
