Russian term or phrase:на образовательной площадке TED
"Демонстрация прибора состоялась на образовательной площадке TED."
More context: this is in regard to a portable filter that was invented, which turns any polluted water - from rivers, lakes, swamps, and even puddles - into drinking water. He spoke at the famous TED Talks to demonstrate how this product is used.
Need to know how the so-called "образовательная площадкa" on TED Talks is called. (Does it have an official name?)
"Ted Talks" is what the show/ initiative is called. The guy in question spoke on the show and demonstrated how the device works. Not sure what is meant by "образовательная площадкa" though. You may be right in that it's just a modifier.
If not, the author may simply be referring to the whole TED organization in this typically Russian way, where most proper names are preceded by a modifier. E.g. we don't say "Нажмите ОК" but "Нажмите кнопку ОК", even when it's perfectly clear that OK refers to a button.

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a media organization which posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan "ideas worth spreading". TED was founded in February 1984 as a conference, which has been held annually since 1990. TED's early emphasis was technology and design, consistent with its Silicon Valley origins, but it has since broadened its focus to include talks on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TED_(conference)
