TEDx Saclay – Worth all the Applause

by Rose Bloomfield -

For the third year running, Ideas on Stage was very happy to partner with the TEDx Saclay conference, which took place this November 30, 2017 in the brand-new CentraleSupélec amphitheater at the Plateau de Saclay on the powerful theme of “Serving the Living”.


TEDx Saclay

Keeping standards typically high, this year’s event boasted a rich program of speakers including a few notably prestigious guests such as Cédric Villani – renowned mathematician and member of the French National Assembly – as well as artists, scientists, students, entrepreneurs and even a Guinness World Record gamer (Kayane). Presenters shared moving stories on subjects ranging from the wonders of astrophysics (Miho Janvier), innovations in the fight against cancer (André Choulika), butterflies and biophysics (Maëlle Vilbert), the transformative art of storytelling (Sylvie Mombo), and of course, the blockchain (Anca Petre).
