Bright Ideas is the curiosity-inducing theme for the upcoming edition of TEDxUHasselt. With this theme we are going back to the basics of TED, which is all about spreading innovative and sometimes even controversial ideas.
Our aim this year is to present world-class speakers on our stage, in order for the audience to enrich their lives by gaining new experiences which they would otherwise never encounter. In addition to this, they can extensively develop their skills during the workshops and network with other TED enthusiasts, speakers and partners. As organisers, we hope that the wide range of opportunities will leave a lasting impression on the attendees.
