Tours’ François Rabelais University has launched a call for submissions for an international colloquium to be held in the city between 24 and 26 May 2016. The event aims to take a closer look at the notion of ecosystem services in urban environments, focusing in particular on its cultural acceptance. With regard to other services, thought will be given to their contributions to humankind, users and managers.
This summer, in addition to the Beach Trains connecting Le Mans to Le Croisic and Saumur to Sables-d'Olonne, the Châteaux train is running in the opposite direction, connecting Sables-d’Olonne to Saumur.
Installation of an ornamental finial, a gilded fleur-de-lys weathervane, atop Château de Saumur’s southeast tower on 8 July 2015 proved a delicate operation. It restored the monument’s “château-palace” allure as depicted in a miniature in the medieval work “The Duke of Berry’s Book of Hours”.
The Département of Maine-et-Loire has decided to breathe new life into Château de Montsoreau, which it owns. It is about to sign a long-term (25-year) administrative lease with Philippe Méaille, a private collector of contemporary art who lives in the département.
This new viticultural skills cluster aims to contribute to the regional sector’s dynamism and competitiveness. It should enable development of research, transfer and training activities in the vitivinicultural field. The network possesses a building in Amboise, which was inaugurated on 7 July 2015.
