Learn more about us
From 2010 we energize our local community of experimentalists & innovators in order to engage with ideas and each other to generate change, innovate attitudes and become change agents through this we are shaping now the so much needed future role-models of our communities.
The TEDxCluj Conference and events are held annually in the multicultural town of Transylvania in Romania gathering in 2 years over 1000 participants. This year over 1500 experimentalists will attend. The breadth of content includes science, business, the arts and the global issues facing our communities.
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, our community. So we're building a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from our local/regional most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.
TEDxCluj is curated by a team of highly motivated young professionals, having various business and educational backgrounds.

The city spreads out from St. Michael's Church in Unirii Square, built in the 14th century and named after the Archangel Michael, the patron saint of Cluj-Napoca. The boundaries of the municipality contain an area of 179.52 square kilometres (69.31 sq mi). An analysis undertaken by the real estate agency Profesional Casa indicates that, because of infrastructure development, communes such as Feleacu, Valcele, Martinesti, Jucu and Baciu will eventually become neighbourhoods of the city, thereby enlarging its area.
Cluj-Napoca experienced a decade of decline during the 1990s, its international reputation suffering from the policies of its mayor of the time,Gheorghe Funar. Today, the city is one of the most important academic, cultural, industrial and business centres in Romania. Among other institutions, it hosts the largest university in the country, Babes-Bolyai University, with its famous botanical garden; nationally renowned cultural institutions; as well as the largest Romanian-owned commercial bank.
Monocle magazine identified Cluj-Napoca as one of the top five places worldwide that are due their turn in the international spotlight during 2008. According to the American magazine Information Week, Cluj-Napoca is quickly becoming Romania's technopolis.
