Italian daily joins European continent-wide ‘English-language network’

Italian daily Corriere della Sera will become the fourth partner in the European journalism network launched by NRC Handelsblad in the Netherlands, Der Spiegel in Germany and Politiken in Denmark. The papers will work together to establish a continent-wide network to provide English-speaking web users with access to their journalism. Rüdiger Ditz, editor-in-chief of Spiegel Online, said: “The new partnership, modelled on airline alliances, aims to promotes the members’ national identities while building the platform for a truly pan-European dialogue.” Spiegel and NRC Handelsblad first joined forces in 2008 to establish the blueprint for an English-language network of private publishers across Europe. Since then, the two companies have frequently exchanged articles and cooperated on a number of joint journalistic projects, including collaborative reporting and online chats. After the network expanded in 2009 to include Denmark’s Politiken, the partners jointly covered the run-up to the European parliament elections by carrying interviews with opinion-makers across the continent
