German U15 met with the French partner organisation Udice in Paris in November 2023. Udice brings together the ten research-intensive universities in France. The two alliances have been working closely together since it was founded in 2020. The meeting in Paris was the first joint general meeting.

These include deepening the mutual exchange and joint advocacy for scientific excellence in Germany, France and Europe, promoting the networking of research universities in Europe and worldwide, and jointly advising political decision-makers in both countries.

Prof. Dr Dr h. c. Michael Hoch, Chairman of the Board of German U15, emphasized the importance of the meeting:

"The top French universities are among our closest cooperation partners. In Paris, we discussed how we can join forces even better. I look forward to further intensifying our cooperation."
