Cambridge Research Hub


Established in January 2016 at the University of Cambridge, the DAAD-University of Cambridge Research Hub (Forschungszentrum) on German Studies aims to explore the German world, past and present.

Drawing on the university’s excellent research infrastructure as well as the high number of scholars working on Germany and German culture across multiple disciplines, the hub was designed as a platform for the study of German culture in the UK and beyond. Its portfolio will include exchange visits with German scholars, the development of new research projects and two public forums per year that will be held in cooperation with a German newspaper.

The research hub will receive up to a total of  EUR 1 million funding from the German Academic Exchange Service over the period of five years.

Professor Christopher Young and Professor Christopher Clark  act as directors of the research hub. Neil McGregor, the former Director of the British Museum, serves as its patron.

The lecture by Christoph Keese, Executive Vice President der Axel Springer SE, on “Disruption in Business: The Crisis of Legacy Companies in Germany and Europe” marked the official start of the research hub activities.
