Once a month during term-time the CNE hosts hour-long Seminars that are open to students and academics across the College and beyond. With presentations from senior external figures in academia, industry and government, the Seminar Series aims to keep the CNE at the forefront of global nuclear research and initiatives and cement its position as a focal point of the UK nuclear community.
