Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) is a non profit, non partisan research institution devoted to the study of sustainable development and governance. Recognised by the President of the Italian Republic in July 1989, FEEM has become a leading research center at the international level.
One of its principal aims is to promote interaction between the academic, industrial and policy spheres in order to comprehensively address economic development and environmental issues.
FEEM’s research activities are inspired by four main criteria:
i) to analyze relevant and innovative research areas;
ii) to focus on real world issues;
iii) to integrate multidisciplinary approaches;
iv) to create and foster international research networks.
While remaining thoroughly Italian in location and perspective, FEEM promotes the international dimension of activities by selecting topics of global relevance, by creating networks and partnerships in various countries, and by attracting researchers trained and working abroad.
The international research network is certainly one of FEEM’s most valuable intangible assets. Built up over the years by involving the best researchers and top research institutions on various projects, the network allows FEEM to remain acquainted with the state-of-the-art scientific knowledge, to spread its results more extensively, and to increase its personnel’s international interaction.
Moreover, FEEM has sound and proven experience in coordinating European projects and it has become the privileged interlocutor of a number of policy institutions, among which are the IPCC, the World Bank, the European Commission, the Italian Ministries, Regions and local municipalities.
