The Leipzig Centre for the Study of France and the Francophone World (FZ) cooperates closely with members as well as partners at higher education and research institutions in Germany, France and French-speaking countries.
German Network of University Centres Dedicated to France and Francophone Countries
After years of cooperation, a German network of university centres dedicated to France and francophone countries was founded in January 2021.
The network is an association of currently nine academic centres, which are committed to intensifying Franco-German university cooperation at the universities of Berlin, Bonn, Dresden, Freiburg, Leipzig, Mainz, Saarbrücken, Stuttgart and Mannheim.
These centres aim to contribute to stepping up and consolidating the exchange between Germany and the francophone world from within the universities – by facilitating even better networking of students and academics, but also in other ways.
