"Opening doors" – Ideas for a better future
Mathematics, journalism, finance, astrophysics or humanitarian aid : while the fields of expertise of the speakers at TEDxZurich 2017 were highly diverse, they all had one thing in common. As lateral thinkers, change-makers and visionaries they do not settle for traditional norms and systems but search for innovative solutions, launch their own projects and revolutionize present ways of thinking. The ones who were lucky enough to be sitting in the audience after getting hold of one of the much sought-after tickets, were able to listen to inspiring anecdotes about cyborgs, refugees becoming computer scientists or new wage systems. In accordance with the TED rules, the speakers presented their ideas in 18 minutes or less.

Networking with representatives of different industries and academia is increasingly important as a way of attracting notable congresses and conferences for Zurich’s ICT cluster.
