Covid-19: a challenge we must overcome together

Eni stands with Italy and its people: #togetherwerise

The Covid-19 public health emergency is an unprecedented crisis that is radically changing our lives, putting us all to the test. We will only overcome it by acting together.

During a global emergency such as this, we must mobilize all available resources to overcome the challenges ahead. We are proud to contribute to finding solutions to this challenge facing humanity.

Eni’s expertise at Italy’s service

We are supporting everyone on the front line managing the Covid-19 public health emergency in Italy through a series of major initiatives using our wide-ranging experience gained from healthcare projects around the world.

Among our many commitments, we are the sole partner of Agostino Gemelli University Policlinic in building its Covid 2 Hospital in Rome (formerly the private Columbus Hospital), exclusively dedicated to the care of patients suffering from coronavirus. The financial commitment for these interventions amounts to approximately 35 million euros. And to tackle the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, we have made the HPC5 supercomputer, the world's most powerful industrial supercomputer, available for research. Then, in the Versalis plant in Crescentino (near Vercelli), we have started production of a new line of hand disinfectant, whose active ingredient is ethanol, obtained from raw vegetable material, to support growing demand in Italy for this personal protective equipment.

HPC5: a research supercomputer

We have made our HPC5 supercomputing infrastructure and molecular modelling skills freely available for coronavirus research, offering the highest quality tools and resources to the fight against this global emergency.

This collaboration is part of the European Exscalete4Cov initiative, which is bringing together leading institutions and research centres from Italy and across Europe to identify the safest and most promising drugs to tackle coronavirus. We are contributing to the project in partnership with Cineca, a non-profit research consortium that includes universities, national research centres and the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research. Our joint team will carry out dynamic molecular simulations of viral proteins whose methods of infection are similar to Covid-19 to identify the most effective pharmaceutical compounds from a potential list of around 10,000. Following this, research will be carried out for new specific antiviral molecules through screening billions of molecular structures.
