Eni Award Categories:
With the aim of decarbonizing energy systems, Energy Frontiers Award recognizes technological breakthroughs in the fields of renewable energy and related energy management and storage technologies.
Advanced Environmental Solutions Award: technological innovation to promote the growth of a sustainable and resilient nature within a scenario of continuously changing climate, through the enhancement of nature-based solutions, and the preservation and restoration of natural capital, in order to accelerate the shift towards a circular economy, bio-economy, and environmentally sustainable business models, in accordance with the “One Health – Planetary Health” perspective.
Energy Transition Award: for capturing, using, and storing carbon dioxide (CCUS), along with increased energy efficiency, as a bridge to decarbonization of the energy system; for improving energy efficiency in transportation and industrial processes; and for promoting the use of sustainable (including from an economic viewpoint) technologies.
Young Investigator of the Year honor:
Two prizes given to PhD candidates from Italian universities who have written theses on the following topics: improving nature-based solutions to create a sustainable and resilient environment in the face of ongoing climate change; and preserving and restoring natural capital to hasten the transition to the circular economy, bioeconomy, and environmentally sound business models in line with the “One Health – Planetary Health” philosophy.
Young Talents from Africa Award: Research Debut.
In order to speed up the transition to the circular economy, bioeconomy, and environmentally sustainable business models, four awards given to African graduates who completed a degree or master’s thesis on the following topics: development of a sustainable and resilient nature within a continuously changing climate scenario, through the enhancement of nature-based solutions, and the preservation and restoration of natural capital. In celebration of the award’s tenth anniversary and the creation of this category, in 2017,
