Eni continued its partnerships with the academic world, developing a university network focused on oil and gas themes and, in general, broadening relations with academic institutions and the top business schools. In particular, through Eni Corporate University, several initiatives have been established with prestigious Universities: the specialized master in “Petroleum Engineering and Operations” and the master of science in “Petroleum Engineering” in partnership with the Politecnico di Torino; the specialized master in “Design of Oil & Gas Plants” and “Safety and Environmental Management in the Oil & Gas Industry” with the Università di Bologna; master of science “Energy Orientation – Hydrocarbons” with the Politecnico di Milano and “Geology of Hydrocarbons” with the Università di Perugia; also in progress is the fifth edition of the first level master’s course in “Management of Health, Safety, Environment & Quality System” organized in partnership with the Università di Pisa and with the cooperation of the QUINN consortium; and the “Integrated petroleum geoscience course” was run with the Università di Perugia.

The 4th Edition of the “eni program for management development” was carried out in partnership with the SDA Bocconi School of Management, where 28 young managers were involved from all Eni’s locations in Italy and abroad. The program is designed to provide methodologies and tools for acquiring an integrated vision of the company, an understanding of the economic and financial dynamics, the management of new business development models in international contexts and the acquisition of team leadership and team working skills.

In partnership with the Imperial College Business School and the Oxford Said Business School, a development path for excellence was created, the “ETS Summer School”, for 35 young people on general management, finance and trade topics.

Altogether, in 2013, 160 participants were involved and monitored including students at masters level, masters graduate students and research fellows; all participants in the major initiatives were recruited by companies/divisions of the Group.

Anti-Corruption training and awareness

Anti-corruption training is compulsory and is extended to all people at risk, in Italy and abroad. The aim of the training is to illustrate the applicable Anti-Corruption laws, Eni’s Anti-Corruption compliance programme and to provide the knowledge and tools to recognize potentially criminal conduct, the actions to be taken, and the risks, responsibilities and sanctions that may result, in order to prevent and combat instances of corruption.

Training is delivered through on-line courses (e-learning) and workshop training events carried out directly by the Anti-Corruption legal office (ACSLU) in Italy and abroad. In 2012 a new version of e-learning was developed, taking into account the changes in the international legislation on Anti-Corruption and, consequently, domestic regulations. This new version of the e-learning was delivered from 2013 onwards.

In 2013, approximately 9,200 employees were trained using the new e-learning cycle.

With specific reference to classroom training events, 57 sessions were held in 2013 (13 Anti-Corruption workshops at subsidiaries abroad; 5 seminars dedicated to specific functions such as Legal Affairs, Internal Audit and Communications within Eni; 8 seminars for top management; 4 “Responsible Leadership” seminars; 1 Welcome Board for board members of Eni and its subsidiaries; 11 “Safety Roadshows”; and 15 “institutional manager training” sessions) attended by about 1,570 persons.
