Food. Innovation. Every dimension of life. All discussed in one day.
October 16th 2014. 

This invitation-only event is independently organized under TED-license and will challenge you to think differently, share ideas and broaden your horizons. TEDxEde is organized by a nonprofit foundation and so there will be no profit made from this event. 

Theme 'Taste of Life' 

Central in the so called ‘Food Valley’, Ede is a city where there is a lot of knowledge about food and nutrition, for example at the Universitiy of Wageningen which is known and respected all over the world. TEDxEde wants to connect to this interesting movement and all the knowledge there is in the Valley with the theme ‘The Taste of Life’. With this theme, TEDxEde would like to give you a taste of, not only food, but also about the taste of a more socially, economic and innovative dimension of life. The Taste of Life represents the multiplicity of life in general with its highs and lows. In 2014 TEDxEde wants to show  taste from different points of view. Please join us in this journey on October 16th! 



All our events in 2013, 2014 and 2015 will be held in 'ReeHorst' in Ede. The ReeHorst in Ede is centrally located in the Netherlands and at the heart of the stunning Veluwe region, an area of breathtaking natural beauty. That makes a perfect location Which is, easily and quickly accessible from the motorway (A12 and A30/5 min) and by train (Ede-Wageningen station/3 min). The facility also has 700 dedicatedparking spaces.  


TEDxEde 2014 will start at 10:00h. You're welcome to be present from 9:00h. Please be on time, since our schedule is pretty tight and we leave the doors to the auditorium closed during talks.

On this wonderful day you will not only be inspired by lots of Talks, but also the food, some surprises and the other guests of the Event will make the day special. We aim to end the event at 17:00h, but there is also the possibilty to dine with the speakers and other guest at the ReeHorst. If you want to dine with us, please send an email to with your name and we’ll reserve a seat for you. The costs of this dinner are 32.50 euro.
