About TEDxPatras

TEDxPatras is the leading platform for ideas, creativity and innovation in Western Greece. It aims to highlight and promote the idea of TED to the regions’s audience. It is a self-organized standard TEDx event and is is operated under license from TED since 2014.

TEDxPatras focuses on sharing thoughts and valuable experience from the fields of Science, Technology, Education, Entrepreneurship, Sports and Arts. The Talks will be held by people, who realize their dreams, overcome obstacles, surpass themselves, and evolve. Apart from the ideas worth spreading, TEDxPatras intends to trigger discussion and networking through Workshops and Live Broadcasting, that will be conducted in parallel with the main event.

Throughout the whole process of setting up the event, the value of volunteering and team spirit will be promoted, giving an opportunity for locals to be part of the experience of organizing and carrying out a TEDx event.
