Now or never

We have asked the speakers: what springs to mind when you hear our theme: Now of never! What would be the first challenge you would address in your field of expertise? Why is it urgent? What are possible solutions? By starting from the same question, your ideas can inspire the audience and make connections between science and society.

Looking back! Watch the TEDx Talks!
