x=independently organized TED event

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a unique conference format from the USA under the motto "ideas worth spreading". Independently organized TEDx events have evolved from this worldwide. The basic idea has remained the same: To inspire and move people with their own ideas.


Become a partner

Become a partner of TEDxKIT and be part of a success story. Reach a young, inspiring and international target group at KIT. Address students from different study programmes as well as citizens of the city. Also benefit from the international awareness of TEDx and its online reach.



The conferences welcome regional and international speakers and performances covering a wide range of inspiring topics and ideas - from research and science to global issues, business, culture and the arts. All talks are recorded and published on TEDx's YouTube channel under the Creative Commons licence to reach an even wider audience.


The target audience

The audience consists of external guests and young, international and successful students of KIT. KIT is known for its excellent study programmes and research in science. The target group is very diverse and interested in international topics and challenges. What brings all guests together is the conviction that new ideas, creativity and innovation-driven thinking are the basis for future development and progress. In addition, you reach the citizens of Karlsruhe and potentially thousands of viewers on YouTube and other social channels.


Exploring limits

After taking a little break last year, we'll be back with TEDxKIT in 2021. Our next event will take place on Wednesday, 06.10.2021, at the TRIANGEL Open Space.

Under the motto "Exploring Limits", ideas worth spreading will be presented in inspiring talks by speakers.

You can look forward to a varied supporting programme and a great community!
