Eni Award Scientific Secretariat

Eni Award Scientific Secretariat

Since 2003 FEEM supports eni in organizing the Scientific Secretariat of the prestigious eni award. The prize was officially launched in July 2007 to replace and extend the former Eni-Italgas Prize, which in 2006 had reached its XIX edition.

The award is promoted by eni in order to encourage basic and applied scientific research within the national and international scientific community, to provide incentives for technological development and innovation, to promote a better use of energy sources and help new generations of researchers to emerge.

Over the years the award has gained a solid reputation as one of the most important scientific prizes in the fields of energy and environment and today it is considered the “Nobel Prize for Energy” by the international scientific community for several reasons: the increasing number of projects submitted by researchers all over the world, the worldwide network of universities and research centers and the prestige of the Scientific Commission that includes renowned international scientists and two Nobel Prize Laureates.

In 2013, FEEM prepared the Eni Award 2014 Edition, the first of the triennial cycle 2014-2016.  Large participation in the call for proposals confirmed the positive increase trend of the previous Editions, totalizing 1405 submitted Candidatures and thus achieving a 21.65% increase if compared with the 2013 Edition (1155 Candidatures). This outstanding outcome provides further proof of the interest of the worldwide scientific community in this Prize.

In 2013, the Eni Award Scientific Commission welcomed three outstanding representatives of the international scientific research community for the new 2014 Edition: Khalid Aziz (Otto N. Miller Professor Emeritus, Department of Energy Resources Engineering, Stanford University), Fredrick Sarg (Research Professor, Department of Geology and Geological Engineering, Colorado School of Mines), Michael Graetzel (Professor, Laboratory of Photonics and Interfaces, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne).
