We use the CoRoT-survey to search for transiting close-in planets of intermediate-mass stars (M* = 1.3 − 2.1 M⊙). We present recent results of our survey. RV-surveys and direct imaging campaigns showed, that intermediate-mass main-sequence stars have more massive planets then solar-like stars. Even brown dwarfs have been found. In our study we concentrated on short-period planets for which a mass-determination is possible. The detection of close-in planets of intermediate-mass stars put strong constraints on the timescales of the formation and migration. We already have identified transiting Jupiter-like planet candidates with short orbital periods and observed these candidates with high-resolution echelle-spectrographs at various Telescopes.
