  • Alternating School-Work project

    The Alternating School-Work project is one of the initiatives introduced by Eni following the signing of a memorandum of understanding with the Italian Ministry of Education (MIUR) and Ministry of Labour and Social Policies (MLPS) to promote full integration between business and educational establishments. The programme aims to provide an overview of the current energy situation and help children in their career choices, allowing them to discover a range of professional roles at Eni from up close and encouraging them to develop the transferrable skills needed for successful entry into the world of work.

  • First Level Apprenticeship

    The First Level Apprenticeship project, another of the initiatives that aims to promote full integration between business and educational establishments, involves students carrying out work experience and training at Eni’s premises alongside their regular studies. This is achieved through on-the-job training, traditional classroom-based courses and e-learning. The students involved come predominantly from technical and vocational colleges and attend various Eni industrial sites, from the Gela, Venice and Sannazzaro refineries to the Oil Centres in Val d’Agri. They are supported by tutors from Eni, who work closely with their school teachers.

  • Green Data Centre

    The Eni Green Data Centre, which came into operation in 2013, was developed with the aim of ensuring the highest level of reliability for all of the company’s IT requirements, and to achieve world-beating “green” energy efficiency results. The facility hosts all of the central processing systems, both for management systems and the processing of HPC simulations.

  • Poseidon

    Eni’s Poseidon Project transforms decommissioned gas extraction platforms, off the coast of the Romagna region in the Adriatic Sea, into centres for the study of marine fauna and flora and the protection of endangered species. With the creation of an authentic science park, the first of its kind in Europe, the project is helping to protect biodiversity.

  • Project Italy

    In the area of renewables, Eni has launched the Progetto Italia, an industrial conversion project that foresees the creation of mainly photovoltaic plants at industrial sites reclaimed by Syndial that are available for use and of low interest for other activities. Many of these areas can be converted into green energy production facilities.

  • School Projects in Basilicata

    Eni has confirmed its support for school and cultural projects in Basilicata, with initiatives aimed at meeting local needs in partnership with the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, in line with agreements signed with the Basilicata Region.
