The Frankreichzentrum is involved in a number of projects in the field of graduate training and research.

It takes responsibility for the cooperation with the Paris-based research group on “Cultural Transfer between Germany and France” with which it investigates the transnationally entangled history of humanities and  area studies in both countries from the 18th century to the present and edits the series “Deutsch-Französische Kulturbibliothek“ as well as the e-journal „geschichte.transnational“.
