Khayyam Centre for Iranian Studies

Date of Establishment: March 2018

Head: Dr Najmeh Shobeiri

About the Centre:

In 2018, the Khayyam Center for Iranian Studies (KCIS) was officially established and inaugurated by Allameh Tabataba'i University at the University of Nebrija in Madrid. The CKIS is a cultural, scientific centre, introducing the Iranian culture, customs, language, and history. To this aim, Persian Language programmes and courses are regularly offered in the centre, and famous Iranian characters are introduced to the non-Iranian community along with these programmes.
The Center was named after Omar Khayyam owing to the rare excellence and age-old fame of this Iranian thinker and poet. Ghiyath al-Din Abu al-Fath, Omar ibn Ibrahim, Khayyam Neyshaburi, the Iranian philosopher, mathematician, astrologer, and poet wrote about philosophy in a plain and readable style, so that after a thousand years, scholars from all around the world are still referring to the richness of his poetry, seeing it as a common language for the people of the field.
