Eni's main collaborations with universities and research centres

Alliances for the future of energy and the planet under the banner of innovation and the energy transition.

Pooling excellence for the future of the planet

Collaboration agreements with universities and research institutes are of strategic importance and give us considerable strength to accelerate the transition to increasingly sustainable energy. We have already taken important steps in this ambitious and concrete process, but we need to create a national and global system of research excellence to promote a culture of circularity and Carbon Neutrality, combining investment opportunities and know-how. These collaborations in the field of innovation lay the foundations for overcoming the challenges facing companies and civil society by developing technologies for the future of energy.

Research and innovation, our growth pillars

Technological research allows us to consolidate and improve our skills in order to develop innovative projects covering all aspects of the production chain along the following strategic guidelines:

  • Operational Excellence to research technologies for asset development, increasing energy efficiency, ensuring the highest level of safety and minimal environmental impact;
  • Carbon Neutrality to reduce, capture, transform or store CO₂, promoting natural gas as an energy source in the transition to a low-carbon energy mix, integrating it with renewable energies and developing innovative energy technologies;
  • Circular economy to reduce the use of raw materials by transforming waste into products with added value, including through recycling.
    We continue to strengthen our network of collaborations with leading national and international scientific institutions. The fight against climate change and technological research require continual synergy with the world's best universities and research institutes.
