 TED has never paid speakers to appear, but has always committed to creating an experience that is tremendously fulfilling for all engaged parties. For our TEDx event, we uphold the same goals.

TEDxUCD events are organised by volunteers from the UCD Research and Innovation team based at NovaUCD.

Thank you for your support and interest in TEDxUCD



TEDxUCD has been running annually since 2013.  We are hoping to run our next event in December 2017.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

TEDxUCD is organised by volunteers from UCD Research & Innovation at University College Dublin, Ireland.
