Franco-German academic cooperation


HeiParisMax is a Franco-German academic cooperation between leading scientific institutions whose aim is to encourage a transnational exchange of ideas between young scientists in order to promote the Franco-German friendship in the centre of Europe.

The German academic institutions involved in this cooperation are the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law (Heidelberg) as well as the Faculty of Law of the University of Heidelberg. The French partner institutions involved are the Sorbonne Law School (Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne University) and the Sciences Po Law School.

French and German perspectives on a changing global judicial system

Under this general title the scientific research of the participating researchers should refer to subjects dealing with international and European law as well as public comparative law. In respect of these disciplines, the cooperation constitutes the first institutionalised Franco-German forum for Ph.D. and postdoctoral researchers.
