Collaborations for innovation

Our network of partnerships involves universities, research centres, technology companies and startups, to accelerate decarbonisation.

The skills of our people are enriched thanks to a network of innovation partnerships in Italy and abroad and the constant dialogue between our internal resources and leading external organisations. Our partnerships involve universities, research centres, technology companies and startups, and lead to the implementation of tangible projects to accelerate the decarbonisation process.


Using our experience and knowledge of the engineering and scientific sectors, we support emerging ideas with the aim of developing them on an industrial scale and creating long-term value. For this reason we have adopted shared methodologies in order to identify areas of improvement and benefits.
