TEDx is once more coming to Leuven!  As a member of Leuven.Inc you get the privilege to participate. Listen to and share ideas worth spreading during this half-day conference on "Invent happiness".

Started in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At a TEDx event, the world's most fascinating thinkers and do-ers are challenged to bring their story in 18 minutes time. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.
