Enel Foundation is a non-for-profit organization promoted and fully supported by Enel. It aims at carrying out studies and research activities, at promoting executive training and dissemination initiatives on energy, socio-economic, sustainable development and innovation issues.

The results of the foundation’s research programs are achieved by means of a close cooperation with international academies and research organizations.

The Foundation is also involved in partnerships, aimed at financing specific research projects; this is a fundamental tool in order to create and consolidate a network of scientific and institutional relationships, that may increase the impact of Foundation’s activities within the wide community of knowledge actors.
