Summer University

Ever since 2003, a week-long summer university dedicated to to the subject of food history and culture has been held each year in Tours.

Its aim is to help and encourage students and junior researchers to pursue their chosen paths by enabling them to mix with established academics, who are all distinguished specialists.

This event aims to create links between researchers and students from different countries and different backgrounds so as to enable them to meet each other outside any disciplinary barriers. The objective is to promote student and teacher mobility in order to create a real European food culture-related academic space.
