PRESS RELEASE | Eni launches Eniverse Ventures to enhance proprietary technologies in new businesses while promoting a just transition.

Building synergies with external partners

Eniverse brings together internal research and expertise with the entrepreneurship of the most innovative companies in the market.

It draws on Eni's experience in several engineering and science sectors, on a network of collaborations with universities, research centres, tech companies and start-ups and on a system of alliances with strategic partners.

In particular, the company deals with:

  • market incubation for technologies that have not reached adequate maturity levels
  • market validation by interacting with the market
  • business building by setting up new ventures and supporting them in the scale-up phase.

Eniverse complements our approach to Open Innovation, working alongside Joule, Eni's Business School, Eni Next, our Corporate Venture Capital company, and Innovation Match, the eniSpace platform followed by Eni Procurement.
