About Eni

Africa, for Eni, is the past, the present and the future. Africa is the continent which Eni has experienced, as pioneer, and the one, which today continues to shape Eni’s experiences as partner of countries where Eni has established lasting relationships, understanding and respecting African societies and cultures and their diversity. A presence in a continent, which supplies more than half of Eni’s crude oil and natural gas production, a share which is increasing thanks to the successes of recent prospecting campaigns. In these complex times, the energy industry is faced with a twin challenge: ensuring that the world’s growing population, due to increase from 7 to more than 11 billion people by 2100, has access to low cost energy and, at the same time, making sure that this is achieved in an environmentally sustainable way.

In line with its mission, inspired by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Eni contributes to the SDGs targets through strategic cooperations focused on areas of common interest such as youth employment, agriculture value chains and renewable energy and energy efficiency, particularly in Africa.


Eni has a very long tradition of supporting scholarships. The “Scuola Enrico Mattei” paved the way for post graduate education in Italy and proved to be a pioneer for managerial studies in Europe. Since 1957 the “Scuola” has granted scholarships to around 2600 young graduates from 111 different countries to attend an oil and energy industry “Master MEDEA” programme, spreading the Mattei legacy throughout the world. Eni’s training and knowledge management is promoted and implemented through Eni Corporate University. In order to reinforce the company’s expertise in its business areas, Eni avails itself of a long established relational network with the most prestigious national and international universities. Amongst these esteemed institutions Eni can count on the collaboration of Oxford University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, besides the leading Italian Universities.
