Training and development has been fundamental in Eni, right from the company’s foundation. Eni’s founder, Enrico Mattei, placed his trust in the contribution that people could make to the company’s growth. For him it was an essential part of the secret of Eni's success, due to the speed with which he managed to set up and put in place a formidable network of technical specialists and managers. In 2001, Eni Corporate University (ECU) was founded to carry out training activities and ensure that the company’s culture was consistently and correctly developed and shared.
The goal is to provide continuous training programmes that focus on the individual and employ the most innovative learning methods to strengthen and develop our people's skills.
