On Friday 17 September 2021, the Institute for Comparative Law, Conflict of Laws and International Business Law of Heidelberg University (Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Thomas Pfeiffer) will host the EFFORTS German Exchange Seminar. This half-day online conference is held within the framework of the project “EFFORTS – Towards more effective enforcement of claims in civil and commercial matters within the EU”, funded by the European Commission and conducted by the University of Milan (coord.), the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law, Heidelberg University, the Free University of Brussels, the University of Zagreb, and the University of Vilnius.

The program for the German Exchange Seminar is available here (PDF, in German). Participation is free of charge. Participants are kindly requested to pre-register by sending an email to sekretariat.pfeiffer@ipr.uni-heidelberg.de.

The EFFORTS-project tackles in particular the European Enforcement Order Regulation, the European Payment Order Regulation, the European Small Claims Regulations and the European Account Preservation Order Regulation. Ultimately, it aims to assess the functioning and the effectiveness of cross-border enforcement within the EU. More information on EFFORTS and its research outputs can be found on the project website and in various newsletters previously posted on conflictoflaws.net here, here, and here.
