The Research Centre for Hanse and Baltic History (FGHO) was founded in 1993 and relocated to the European Hansemuseum when the museum opened in 2015. The current director of the Research Centre is Dr. Angela Huang.
The Centre conducts and coordinates historical and interdisciplinary research on the German Hanse and related topics, in the former sphere of Hanse trade, stretching from Portugal to Russia.
With our work we aim to make research on the German Hanse widely accessible through publications, talks and popular media (print, radio and television). The Centre was also significantly involved in the conceptual design of the European Hansemuseum in Lübeck.
30 years FGHO
In 2023, the Research Centre for the History of the Hanse and the Baltic Sea Region will be 30 years old. We will celebrate this with an anniversary year and a day of festivities under the motto "Hanse for all. Research for all".
