UCCDH-affiliated Professor Brendan Dooley has been awarded an Advanced Laureate Award of €1 million to conduct ground breaking research over the next for years. The EURONEWS project is about exploring the information connectedness of premodern European society by examining the regular circulation of news in a vast range of pre-newspaper networks. The manuscript newsletters in question are located largely in some 200 file folders in Florence. Researchers responsible for a selection of these will be working closely with the EURONEWS team, the State Archives in Florence, as well as the Medici Archive Project organization, to implement a systematic extraction method for making sense of the whole mass of documentation and connecting the dots in an expanding pattern of exchanges stretching from Florence to Warsaw, from Paris to Madrid, from the Netherlands to Britain, Ireland and the American colonies. The project's ultimate goal, made feasible for the first time by this funding, is to reconstruct the fascinating news environment of an entire lost world, early modern Europe, at the birth of news.Read more

UCC is a proud partnere within this project team along with CIT and Cork City Council. This ongoing partnership demonstrates UCC's commitment to UNESCO's Sustainable Development Goals, the "SDGs" an ongoing commitment which is foregrounded in the university's new academic strategy for The Connected University.
Our University is committed to welcoming all members of the community and opening our doors to learners at many different stages. How better to showcase this engagement and participation than through the co-creation of these videos that will travel around the world? These videos are created to inspire many other cities to follow the example of Cork and develop their own commitment to lifelong learning, to plan for learning, to encourage accessibility to learning, to celebrate learning in all its many forms.Read more
