In 2008 the EUCENTRE Foundation announced the creation of the ROSE School Prize, to honour individuals for creativity, innovation, research and professional achievements and excellence in education in the field of earthquake engineering and engineering seismology.
The first recipient of the Prize was Professor M. J. Nigel Priestley, who sadly passed away on December 23rd, 2014. The subsequent awardees were Professors V. V. Bertero (2010), L. Esteva (2012) and G.M. Calvi (2014).
The EUCENTRE Foundation has now decided to rename the ROSE School Prize into the Nigel Priestley International Prize and herewith announces the first edition of the prize under this new name. The fundamental motivations and rules will remain essentially unchanged.
