As a part of the UME Programme's activities, an international seminar is organised every year to provide Master and PhD students with an opportunity to present and discuss their research work to an audience of international experts. Since 2015, the seminar is named in honour of Prof. Nigel Priestley, co-founder of the ROSE School in 2001.

In addition to standard presentations on research work carried out within the programmes of the school, the annual seminar features also the tradition of inviting a prominent scientist to deliver a keynote lecture on a given contemporary and highly relevant topic in the field of earthquake engineering and engineering seismology. 

The seminar may also include the UME Doctoral Defence, featuring a committee of independent international experts in charge of the examination.

Further information about each year's seminar can be found on the events main announcements page.
