TRI Talks started on-line in 2020, with the aim of keeping healthy scientific discourse going through the COVID pandemic. Just like TED Talks, after which they were named, they set-out to be engaging, informative and thought provoking. Last year, 743 people from around the world registered to join the conversation.
