Visit from Ecole Polytéchnique de Tours

Aktuelles |

Great pleasure was it to host an ERASMUS-funded visit by Prof. Dr. Christophe Demazière and by Ass. Prof. Dr. Divya Leducq at our TUM chair. They both are teaching urban and regional planning in the Master’s programme ‘Planning & Sustainability’ at the Ecole Polytéchnique de Tours. During their stay in Munich they contributed to our seminar on the Airport Region of Munich with inspiring insights into the history of the mid-sized airport of Tours and its potential futures, given the post-COVID19 dynamics and the French soon-to-be in effect law on restricting domestic flights to a duration of 2.5 hours or more; shorter destinations are to be organised by high-speed rail. We are looking forward to visit Tours in the fall of this year and continue our exchange on research and teaching matters.
