Eni Award 2014

Eni Award 2014

The Eni Award was officially established in July 2007 in order to develop innovative ideas for a better use of energy sources, promote environmental research and to valorize new generations of researchers.
The award is launched annually and has an established and prestigious network of researchers in the field of energy and the environment.
Its target is to monitor and promote the best research and the best scientists in the world in the field of energy, with the ambition to become a sort of Nobel Prize for Energy.
