Meson transition form factors (TFF) describe the electromagnetic structure of mesons and hence provide an important tool for the understanding of the meson-photon interactions. The A2 experiment at MAMI provides a high yield of light mesons produced in photo-induced reactions on protons, which makes the experiment ideal for precision measurements of meson TFFs via studies of meson decays. The A2 collaboration has recently published results of TFFs obtained from measurements of Dalitz decays of the π0 and η mesons as well as the ω → π0e+e− decay. For the study of the η′ Dalitz decay, data has been collected and is being analysed. As a ongoing endeavour, A2 is performing a dedicated measurement of the π0 TFF with statistics increased by several factors compared to the previous A2 result.
