Spirit of Discovery

Plymouth has a proud history of exploration and discovery, and that pioneering spirit is still alive today. There are amazing innovations, fascinating discoveries, and inspirational ideas right on our doorstep, right now. TEDxPlymouthUniversity’s ‘Spirit of Discovery’ will bring together the best of what Plymouth has to offer now and for the future. From entrepreneurs to explorers, philosophers to physicists, we will bring people together to discover new ideas and forge lasting connections.
