SKILLNET – Sharing Knowledge in Learned and Literary Networks


The ERC Consolidator project ‘Sharing Knowledge in Learned and Literary Networks – The Republic of Letters as a Pan-European Knowledge Society’ (SKILLNET), under the direction of Dr Dirk van Miert, conducts research into the ideal of sharing knowledge within early modern scholarly networks in Europe by applying social network analysis and text mining techniques to the metadata and full-text data of large quantities of manuscript and printed letters from the period 1500-1800.

Read more about the project in the Spring 2020 issue of EU Research.

Dirk van Miert presents the project at the ERC Day ‘Utrecht Inspires’ on 28 March 2017
