TEDx Sant'Anna School - Frontiers

Nowadays the world is changing more and more rapidly and research points towards new directions. As students, we are asked not to settle down and take the world for granted, but to build upon what we are given and face new challenges. Once your horizon becomes your standing point, another one is waiting just in front of you. This is the principle inspiring our theme, ‘Frontiers’, an end that becomes a beginning.

What is TED?

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). 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 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

What is a TEDx event?

A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and videos previously recorded at TED conferences are shared with the community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all of them have features in common.

Sant'Anna School

Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies is a public university institute - with special autonomy - working in the field of applied sciences: Economics and Management, Law, Political Sciences, Agricultural Sciences and Plant Biotechnology, Medicine, and Industrial and Information Engineering. The Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies aims at experimenting innovative paths in research and education. Professors and researchers live and interact with the students, day after day, enjoying a continuous cultural and intellectual exchange. Innovative ideas, which are then developed in collaboration with foreign universities, organizations, companies and research institutes, are generated here. Due to its international nature, education of excellence and scientific community, the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies established itself as a reference both in Italy and abroad. The Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies is part of the EUA (European University Association) as an "individual full member".
