franz. is named after Franz Beckenbauer and is a vital part of CAMP BECKENBAUER. CAMP BECKENBAUER and its top-level partners aim to not only be a top-level discussion forum, but to also evoke new ways of thinking, to simultaneously develop goal-oriented solutions and, best of all, to trigger changes in the world of sports.

Developing such solutions with decision-makers in sports, only, is not enough. Fresh and provoking ideas from the best brains of the young generation from around the world are needed to bring about change. Therefore, each year after the CAMP BECKENBAUER Global Summit, the CAMP BECKENBAUER Competence Team launches an international idea competition with topics related to “the future of sports”. The competition is open for undergraduate and graduate students from top universities around the world.
