TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a conference in California 1984, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives. At a TED conference, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less. TED speakers have included Roger Ebert, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Brian Greene, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFUM, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFUM event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Tickets will be available soon

We are an organization devoted to ideas worth spreading stemming from  Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. Our aim is to share people’s passions, set spark to the curious mind and encourage our community to flourish upon each other’s ideas. Our program and activities create a playground for the creative mind, through which we connect and engage leading thinkers and doers in the community in and around Mashhad, both during and in-between events.

All TEDxFUM speakers and organizers are volunteers, committed to nurturing and amplifying the innovative ideas that we hope will make Ferdowsi University of Mashhad — and the world — a better place.
