TEDxGVAGrad aims to enrich the exchanges and dialogues held at the Institute by presenting innovative ideas through its annual TEDxGVAGrad conference. We wish to burst the university bubble through collaborations with stakeholders outside the academic sphere, encouraging the exchange between students and professionals, sharing new and diverse paradigms to address contemporary challenges.

The main aim of our initiative is to organize and host one TEDxIHEID main conference per year, with the first edition taking place in Spring 2022. Alongside the main event, we will also be hosting the TEDxIHEID Student Corner, a space for students from the Institute to present their “ideas worth spreading”: be it research they’ve undertaken, personal experiences and more. We want to foster an inclusive and diverse dialogue within our student community and take advantage of the international culmination of voices we have at our university.
