A TEDx talk organized by the Skolkovo Foundation and Open University Skolkovo attracted a large crowd to a central Moscow hotel over the weekend, with its theme - "Possible Is Everything" - provoking lively debate and captivating presentations.

Participants broached topics that ranged from the practical - how to attract bigger audience to classical music concerts - to the more abstract: how to undertake a long-term innovation project in Russia without losing intertia half way down the line; breaking down perceptions of personal limitations; and conquering space.
