Silicon Valley Outpost: where innovation becomes disruptive

Innovative ecosystems, such as Silicon Valley, offer companies a great opportunity to evolve and grow.

Partnering with high-performing organisations to innovate and grow

Interacting and partnering with Silicon Valley, the world’s most important innovation ecosystem, plays a key role in Eni’s Open Innovation activities. Maintaining a presence in locations where companies, startups, research centres and institutions co-exist and collaborate is an essential part of developing projects that can generate real added value. Scouting innovative startups and integrating new ways of working, as well as identifying trends, disruptive technologies and the intermingling of skillsets are just some of the benefits for our company’s various business areas.

In support of its decarbonisation goals, Eni has long chosen to actively collaborate with the most innovative international start-ups and scale-ups. The opening of this outpost in one of the most vibrant areas of innovation confirms Eni's willingness to position itself at the forefront of digitalisation.
