2023 ENI AWARD for researchers and scientists across Africa.

Established in 2008, the award is now a recognition of applied research into the energy transition. Over the years, it has involved dozens of researchers and scientists from all over the world.

There are three main prizes Eni Awards for Energy Frontiers, Advanced Environmental Solutions and Energy Transition, and awards for the Young Researcher of the YearResearch Debut – Young Talents from Africa and the Recognition of Innovation at Eni for our researchers. The deadline for applications is 25 November 2022. The award ceremony for the 2022 edition will take place at the Quirinal Palace in Rome in autumn this year.

Eni Award categories

  • Energy Frontiers award: technological innovation in the field of renewable energy and related energy management and storage technologies, in the context of decarbonizing energy systems.
  • Advanced Environmental Solutions award: technological innovation to foster the 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 order to accelerate the transition towards circular economy, bio-economy and environmentally sustainable business models, accordingly with the “One Health – Planetary Health” perspective.
  • Energy Transition award: technological innovation aimed at reducing carbon footprint during the transition towards an environmentally neutral energy production system through improving energy efficiency in transport and industrial processes and promoting the use of sustainable (including from an economic viewpoint) technologies; for capturing, using and storing carbon dioxide (CCUS), together with increased energy efficiency, as a bridge to decarbonization of the energy system.
  • Young Researcher of the Year award: two awards for graduates with PhD theses from Italian universities on these themes: 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 order to accelerate the transition towards circular economy, bio-economy and environmentally sustainable business models, accordingly with the “One Health – Planetary Health” perspective; renewable energies and energy storage; new technologies for H2 production (blue, green and turquoise hydrogen); capturing, using and storing carbon (CCUS), and energy efficiency as a bridge to decarbonization of the energy system.
  • Research Debut – Young Talents from Africa award: four awards to go to graduates from African countries for a degree or master’s thesis carried out in an African university on these themes: 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 order to accelerate the transition towards circular economy, bio-economy and environmentally sustainable business models, accordingly with the “One Health – Planetary Health” perspective; renewable energies and energy storage; new technologies for Hproduction (blue, green and turquoise hydrogen); capturing, using and storing carbon (CCUS), and energy efficiency as a bridge to decarbonization of the energy system. This category was created in 2017 on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the award.
  • Eni Innovation awards (for Eni employees): three awards for ideas with the greatest potential for impact in terms of the innovation they could generate and for the best technological innovations resulting from Eni research.

Application Deadline:25 November 2022.
