Innovation, the cornerstone of our strategic plan
Our innovation strategy is both short-term — guided by projects and the demands of the Oil&Gas industry — and medium to long-term to meet changing scenarios.
We have outlined three guidelines:
find innovative solutions to improve our operating performance and reduce environmental impact.
change processes and our way of doing business to improve our productivity and become more receptive to the “ecosystem”, also as a way of taking advantage of digitalisation technologies.
investigate new technologies, both inside and outside the Oil&Gas industry, to identify emerging disruptive technologies.
The Innovation Factory
We have always been able to depend on a grass-roots network to constantly feed our innovation process, including through cooperation with academia and research centres.
And we have done even more, launching two years ago the Innovation Factory, an in-house incubator for ideas and prototype laboratory. It brings together a team of innovative thinkers selected from among our employees on the basis of their ability to think across-the-board, and their creative problem-solving, entrepreneurial and collaborative capabilities.
The Innovation Factory focuses on concrete solutions and developing ground-breaking answers to sector challenges. The goal is not only to boost efficiency and productivity, but also discover and pursue new value propositions.
