On Sunday 21 September, Tours will be hosting the 1st edition of the “Touraine Loire Valley Marathon” in addition to the usual 10- and 20-km itineraries. The aim of its organisers, La Nouvelle République in partnership with Indre-et-Loire General Council and numerous other private and public partners, is to create an unmissable rendezvous among the most popular French Marathons.
Since October 2013, INRAP archaeologists have been carrying out digs upstream of the project for reconversion of the Vienne district’s psychiatric hospital on the left bank of the Loire in Blois. The excavations, which cover an area of almost 12,000 m² and which were ordered by the State (DRAC Centre), are the first to be undertaken to the south of the Loire in Blois.
25 June 2014 saw the inauguration of a new building belonging to the Centre for Higher Renaissance Studies (CESR), a mixed research unit under the joint aegis of François-Rabelais University, Tours, and the CNRS. The new space will be given over to the “Intelligence des Patrimoines” programme providing a fresh approach to territorial promotion combining scientific research and the socioeconomic world to a single end.
On Saturday 28 June 2014, a public holiday, some sixty people attended the inauguration of an exhibition on this experiment, in the presence of the municipality’s elected officials and Mission Val de Loire, a partner of the project. For several months, local inhabitants took part in the drafting of a project for their municipality, with the help of researchers and practitioners engaged in this piece of action research, which is part of a programme under the Ministry of Sustainable Development.
