Discovery is the act of detecting something new, or something "old" that had been unknown. With reference to science and academic disciplines, discovery is the observation of new phenomena, new actions, or new events and providing new reasoning to explain the knowledge gathered.

In simple words a continuous process to understand the world, life and ourselves. A path that leads us from the cosmos all the way to our neighbor next door. From the depth of the oceans and ancient civilizations all the way to discoveries in molecular science and to new possibilities for people, life, our ecosystem and civilization.

Questioning is a major form of human thought and interpersonal communication, and plays a key role in discovery. Discoveries are often made due to questions. So this year, TEDx Academy event will answer questions or form new ones that will lead us to new discoveries...

Panos Mitkidis works at Duke University and Aarhus University, where he is aligned with three centers: the Center for Advanced Hindsight (Social Science Research Institute), the Interacting Minds Center (Department for Culture and Society) and the Interdisciplinary Center for Organizational Architecture (School of Business and Social Sciences).
