Technological and regional partnerships


Snam open data: as part of the interventions carried out, and especially during the restoration stage, Snam provides in-depth information for project execution and to deal with authorisation procedures.


Snam’s aim is to maximise the use of structures, spaces and knowledge to nurture resources, skills and energies at a local level, with a view to improving the company’s integration within the local community


The company’s aim is to facilitate the establishment of technological partnerships with research entities and stakeholders to develop innovative products and services that improve the business and the ability of Snam’s suppliers to open new markets.

Making new investments generates shared value by sharing the output generated from the implementation of infrastructure with the regions, from the planning stages through to the completion of works. 

Besides Snam cooperates with local, national and inernational authorities and takes part in the work of numerous associations and committees, playing an active role and placing its expertise at their disposal in order to promote improvements in various sectors of activity.

Snam a partner of MIP

In 2016, Snam continued its collaboration with MIP School of Management, the consortium between Politecnico di Milano and several large public and private international industrial groups, of which Snam became a shareholder in 2014.
This investment makes it possible to guide specific research and training activities consistent with business objectives, collaborate in the provision of courses by providing instructors and actively participate in projects/traineeships and in placement activities with the goal of developing customised training based on company requirements.
Snam is also researching forms of collaboration with other Italian institutes of higher education to make innovation within the Group increasingly rapid and effective.

Snam assesses the economic impact on the local area of the construction and management of infrastructures through “social impact" studies.

Snam conducts ‘social impact assessment’ studies to assess the economic impact of some of its infrastructure in the area. The related information produced (measurements, monitoring, environmental analysis, etc.) is then shared with the competent authorities and stakeholders as part of authorisation procedures. This voluntary sharing of technical know-how leads to a better knowledge of local areas on the part of stakeholders and public administrations.

Snam shares the knowledge acquired with the local area, by providing the community with important information.

This knowledge growth generates shared value and effectively falls within the development area of “Snam Open data”: constant knowledge sharing between the company and the local areas.
Snam shares the knowledge acquired in the local areas with those same local areas, providing government decision-makers with important information that aids their decision-making processes. The Company then assesses which elements of available qualitative and quantitative technical know-how (e.g. by providing satellite images or georeferencing systems developed in the siting phase) should be shared to improve the knowledge of the local area, and shows complete willingness to engage in dialogue with stakeholders, supporting them in the most delicate phases of development and project management. The results of the analyses conducted demonstrate that, by adding together Snam’s direct investments and indirect investments (related to sub-contracting), there is, on average, an effect on the local economy, at municipal, provincial and regional level, equal to 17-28% of the economic value related to the realisation and operation of the work.

Thanks to the use of innovative technologies, Snam has achieved excellent standards in terms of vegetative restoration, favouring the development of local businesses.

The company has also achieved excellent operating standards in the area of restoration, partly thanks to the use of technologies that minimise the impact on the local area and the environment.
Given the great need for unique and highly technological solutions, Snam indirectly fosters the growth of high-value local entrepreneurship. The company therefore plans to establish technological partnerships with research entities and stakeholders (e.g. suppliers) to develop innovative products and services that improve the business while also improving the ability of Snam’s suppliers to open new markets.
This development area – the result of the evolution of the shared value approach – it is known as “Powering Innovation”.
