TEDxErasmusUniversity to explore ideas about boosting people’s well-being

MBA students from Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) and Young Erasmus are organising the third edition of TEDxErasmusUniversity, which will take place in the Erasmus Paviljoen on Friday 4 November 2016. Seating is limited for this exclusive event, which will showcase ideas to help people becoming healthier and happier. Among the speakers is Ben van Berkel, the architect of Rotterdam’s Erasmus bridge. 

TEDxErasmusUniversity spreads ideas to the wider world, establishes connections between the university and the city of Rotterdam, and offers valuable networking opportunities for participants and speakers. 

Building People
This year’s TED talks will explore ‘building people’. The event will discuss how new knowledge and initiatives are creating a better world for people. Speakers from academia and business will highlight this theme from different perspectives on development through education, social innovation and human interactions with technology.

Ben van Berkel, the architect of Rotterdam’s Erasmus bridge, will talk about architecture’s effect on people. Teodor Cataniciu, young entrepreneur and founder of RE/START, will tell the audience about his goal to overcome inequality and empower bright-minded student refugees by giving them access to world-class tech education.

Other speakers include researchers Payal Arora (Department of Media and Communication and Founders/Executive Director of Catalyst Lab), Patrick Verwijmeren (Professor Corporate Finance), Ellen van de Poel (Behavioural Economics), Kirsten Rohde (Professor Behavioural Economics), Aurelien Baillon (Behavioural Economics) and Elisabeth van Rossum (Professor Erasmus MC, internist and endocrinologist). 

TEDxErasmusUniversity will be hosted by Bob Maclaren. The event is organised by RSM’s International Full-time MBA students in co-operation with Young Erasmus.
