A project, designed with Google, aimed to support FIEG (Italian Federation of Editors and Newspapers) in developing a new mindset towards the opportunities enabled by a consistent adoption of digital technologies in the publishing market. We organised an Envisioning Academy in three different cities and a hackathon in Turin to transform ideas into concrete projects that could be implemented in the industry.
Innovation is a key element of corporate growth and requires the right combination of people, processes and technologies.
We support corporates and SMEs by analysing their business needs and devising ad-hoc projects to help them embrace the opportunities offered by technologies and digital trends.
We also provide corporate training to upskill and build a culture of innovation inside companies encouraging the process of digital transformation.
Connect with digital innovators
Our campuses are dynamic spaces inhabited by a community of digital innovators. Here you can organise corporate events, business lunches, product launches, hackathons, meetups with developers and startups, breakfasts, outdoor aperitifs and much more.
A hands-on event to shape ideas and make them concrete. A brain marathon aimed at developing new, innovative projects that can bring a fresh perspective to the core business of any company. An opportunity to unlock the potential of digital innovators.
The Discovery service has the aim to support the strategic envisioning of the company, providing meaningful connections with people and stakeholders that can deeply impact the company’s path towards innovation. We do it exploiting our global network of innovators in Europe, Israel and Silicon Valley.

This partnership with Talent Garden demonstrates Google's commitment to creating a virtuous digital ecosystem in our country. This new project, in fact, fits consistently between the long-term investments that Google has implemented over the years in Italy, with the aim of offering everyone, citizens and businesses, solid tools and specific training to seize the opportunities of digital.
Innovation and digital culture are two important accelerators of the economy. Our support to the Master in Digital Transformation for the Made in Italy of Talent Garden for the second, consecutive year testifies the Group's willingness to support young people through innovative paths, offering them the tools to compete with the best European talents.
The development of human capital also passes through open training to capture every element of novelty and contamination, and precisely in this case we wanted to initiate a cultural change through an innovative path, both in the issues and in the modalities, in the awareness of how much the digital is a competitive driver for business growth.
With Talent Garden we are working to transform our internal skills with the ultimate goal of accelerating the growth of our country and to create new business models.
Eni made innovation the key to its communication, especially in the digital environment. It seemed to us that Talent Garden was the right place to let ourselves be contaminated by the richness of what is in here, for a dialogue with the world of startups, new initiatives and creativity that is found within the various Italian campuses. It seemed important to have a space, linked above all to the topic of data analysis, and more generally to all the communications activities that Eni does in the digital and tech world.
