What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is call TEDx (place), where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDx (place) event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

What is TEDxKULeuven

Every year we organise a TEDx conference in collaboration with KU Leuven. The events are organised by student volunteers who contribute to the succes of this year's edition in their free time.

Maaike Vandermorsten


Maaike Vandermosten received in 2012 her PhD in Educational Sciences & Psychology from KU Leuven, after which she did a postdoc in neuroscience in collaboration with the University of San Francisco, Maastricht University, Universitรฉ de Genรจve and KU Leuven. She first gained expertise in designing psychophysical auditory and speech experiments, followed by expertise in diffusion MRI tractography, a technique which allowed her to investigate as one of the first white matter connections in persons with dyslexia. At the start of her tenure track, she continued her research on dyslexia, but also established a new research line on stroke-induced aphasia, including projects on the prediction and neuroplasticity in aphasia from the acute to the chronic stage. In her recent projects, natural speech takes a central role, as this allows to gain rich and ecologically-valid information on language processing in difficult-to-test populations such very young children and persons with aphasia.

Stijn Ilsen


As space engineers, we always push the boundaries of what is possible. To achieve what is seemingly impossible. We adopt a moonshot mindset. Get inspired to join us on a journey to the stars.
