Flagship Project 1

Decarbonization and digitalization in research on new green energy sources

Lead industry: Eni S.p.A. 
Universities and EPR: Sapienza Università di Roma, Università di Roma Tor Vergata, Università degli Studi Roma Tre, Università degli studi di Cassino e del Lazio Meridionale, Università degli Studi della Tuscia, Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma, CNR – Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, ENEA – Agenzia nazionale per le nuove tecnologie, l’energia e lo sviluppo economico sostenibile
Industries and other entities: Aeroporti di Roma S.p.A., ACEA S.p,A., Catalent Anagni S.r.l.

This Flagship project covers every aspect of the value chain:

  1. Processes Decarbonization: to reduce, capture, transform or store CO2, increasing energy efficiency, reducing emissions and promoting decarbonized energy vectors;
  2. Circular & Bio products: to reduce, recycle and reuse products and by-products, transforming wastes to valuable products for bio-refinery, sustainable mobility and green/circular chemistry.
  3. Renewables & New energies: to sustain the development of renewable energies and storage solutions and developing breakthrough energy technologies such magnetic fusion.

FP1 involves activities starting from fundamental and applied research, up to development of: training programs focused on the theme of sustainable entrepreneurship through the collaboration with ENI Joule; training programs capable of vertically specializing the best talents and developing resources through an innovative training offer, focused on the new skills needed for green jobs; virtual reality tools, which have the ultimate goal of supporting the energy transition; specific programs with activities that involve employees of partner companies and / or selected companies that correspond to the Technopole mission on intrapreneurship issues, favoring a “contamination” of experiences between the same participants from different companies. Eni Gazometro Ostiense area has been identified as a possible space for the development of the initiative within a dedicated Joint Lab.
