Aims and implementation

What is the French-German Planning Seminar?

Since 1977, the Universities of Hannover and Tours have jointly organised a French-German Planning Seminar every year. In the meantime, the seminar has become an integral part of the curricula of both universities. The seminar takes place in alternating years in a German or a French region. The topics deal with regional planning, urban planning, tourism, nature conservation, rural areas and regional policy. The seminar not only serves to deepen the content of factual issues, but is also intended to promote intercultural exchange and contribute to better mutual understanding. The seminar has been financially supported by the French-German Youth Office since its inception.
