Theme: Swell People and Ideas. Beyond University

This event occurred on
May 24, 2013
4:00pm - 8:00pm CEST
(UTC +2hrs)

The current economic downturn in our regional community has led us to search and find people with ideas to overcome difficulties. We think that our duty is also to spread those ideas as much as possible and to provide examples of success counteracting society's negative perception. Society must know the role of our University - to lead, catalyze and accompany social, economic and event political leaders – and it must be acknowledged and known. Universities (and researchers) occupy the top reputation spots here in Spain and are still a source of trust - perhaps the main one yet. In the second edition of TEDxUdG, thus, we will host university-related academics, staff and students who are actively involved, in some way, with fighting difficulties and creating jobs, setting up projects, becoming more international, and providing innovative education which can look to the future.
