We are proud to partner with TEDxSydney to support the spread of innovative new ideas that can drive change and inspire everyone to make a positive impact on the world.
TEDxSydney is one of the Asia-Pacific's leading platforms for celebrating and sharing world-changing ideas. The partnership is a natural fit with the University's mission to encourage innovative thinking and find real-world solutions to the most pressing issues we face.
The University of Sydney is one of the top research universities in the world – we have been challenging traditions for more than 160 years. Progressive thinking, breaking with convention, questioning the status quo and improving the world around us are in our DNA.
Fittingly, the University has always been an integral part of both TEDxSydney and TEDxYouth@Sydney, as a sponsor for the last eight years. We also contribute heavily to the compelling line-up of thought leaders and change makers on stage each year – academics and alumni.

“Our researchers want to see their ideas out in the world making a positive difference to the communities we serve.”
In 2018 our partnership with TEDxSydney allowed us to highlight some of our inspiring, world-renowned research and the innovative use of technology that is revolutionising our classrooms and laboratories. This approach is driving a paradigm shift for our educators, students and researchers and supporting them to realise their potential.
