Engineering: leader della Digital Transformation

Projects and initiatives of Corporate Social Responsibility

Engineering's contribution to the sustainable development of Italy.

Progetto Diskow

DISKOW project

Big Data and Artificial Intelligence can be used to foster the inclusion of refugees. This has been demonstrated by the Diskow Project, funded by the European Commission as part of Erasmusplus, which, through a shared knowledge base, supports the placement of those fleeing from other countries due to war or famine. One year after its launch, Engineering’s Rome office hosted a project presentation workshop. Philosophers, law experts, associations for social development and support, and the refugees themselves discussed how technology could provide new opportunities to those who have lost everything and want to get their lives back on track.
Cresci e Post@

Cresci e post@ (Grow and post)

To encourage kids to think about the safe use of smartphones and social networks: from privacy protection to the dangers of cyberbullying - this is the goal of “Cresci e post@ - growing up without falling into the net”, which was established in 2017 with the collaboration of Engineering and the Florentine basketball team, Pino Dragons Basket. In 2018, the project was embraced by the Italian Basketball Federation and addressed to the participants of the Under-14 basketball championships. Engineering manages the platform, where the boys and girls from the tournament teams compare experiences and leave posts about the dangers of the Internet.
Muriamo il Bullismo

Let’s Block Bullying

Cybertech, a company from the Engineering Group, has worked alongside the Roma Volley Group, the first Italian company that is a “bully-free-zone”, in winning the most important game: the fight against bullying. Along with MOIGE - the Italian Parents’ Movement, which has devoted itself to protecting young people and families for 20 years, the company launched the crowdfunding campaign #MURIAMOILBULLISMO to raise awareness and inform younger generations and their families about a phenomenon that, unfortunately, is becoming increasingly widespread.
Financial Times Diversity Leaders 2020

2020 Diversity Leaders

Engineering was included by the Financial Times in a special report on the 2020 Diversity Leaders Award: in recognition of the company’s commitment to managing human resources, diversity and inclusion, in the belief that people’s human qualities and professional traits are fundamental for business growth. Of the 700 companies analyzed by the study, Engineering is among only 8 Italian companies included.

STEMintheCity: women between art and science

Engineering and other companies in the public and private sectors, with the support of the United Nations, promoted the third edition of STEMintheCity in Milan. The initiative aimed to promote the diffusion of technical-scientific disciplines and new digital technologies as an opportunity for future professionals from new generations, especially young women. Important figures from this event: over 12,000 participants; 107 schools involved; over 150 free events including seminars, training courses and debates.
Robocup 2018

2018 RoboCup International with Enrico-Carletto

In 2018, Engineering sponsored a new “adventure” in the field of robotics by the Enrico Fermi National Scientific High School of Padua. Since 2014, the company has collaborated with the school, to which it gave Enrico-Carletto NAO, a programmable humanoid robot, which the students use in competitions where they always achieve excellent results. Engineering also sponsored the participation of the E-404 team, made up of 4 secondary school students, in the RoboCup International in Montreal, a world event dedicated to robotics, where the team from Padua ranked second.

Program the future

Also for the 2019/2020 school year we supported "Program the Future", the MIUR project for the introduction of computational thinking in schools, and some of our colleagues have become coding teachers. In the last edition, 80% of schools took part in the initiative, with 38 million hours of coding carried out (an average of 15 hours per student) and over 53,000 teachers and students enrolled on the platform.

Socially Made in Italy

The project involves the reuse of recycled materials and their transformation into fashion products by prisoners as part of a reintegration program. We took part in this project, promoted by the Alice cooperative, by sending PVC used during events, seminars and career days. These recycled materials were processed by prisoners at the Venice prison, who turned them into shopping bags, handbags and other eco-friendly items featuring the Engineering logo.

Gianturco station

We designed and financed a redevelopment project for the Gianturco station on the Circumvesuviana line, which is used by many of our colleagues in the Naples office. The interior of the building was renovated and equipped with surveillance systems. The exterior walls of the station were transformed into a work of art thanks to the "In futuro" murals by the street artist Geometric Bang, which depicts an image of Naples poised harmoniously between natural beauty and sustainable technology.

Eng4Future: Coding into schools

For the last four years, 30 volunteers from Engineering have devoted part of their time to collaborating with schools in different cities and spreading a culture of awareness of IT among children. During these events, our colleagues use programming tools and environments such as Scratch, AppInventor and M-BOT. These projects include the School-Work Alternation initiative carried out with the Orazio secondary school in Rome with the aim of increasing knowledge of mobile programming and robotics.

The Red Devils of Varese Rugby

Since the 2017 season, the Red Devils have been a part of the Varese Rugby Association. This team is made up of athletes from the Ivory Coast, Guinea, Albania, and Peru, who live in Italy as asylum seekers. We at Engineering are proud to be the official sponsor of the team, allowing us to reaffirm our dedication to organizations that help spread the important message of inclusion.
Jack Contemporary Arts TV

JACK Contemporary Arts TV

It is the first international web television channel dedicated to the contemporary arts and its key players, created by MAXXI in collaboration with us at Engineering. Managed directly by museums and institutions dedicated to the creative spirit of today’s artists, it is a continuously updated network that offers live streaming, videos with interviews and reports on all forms of artistic media and expression, contributions from art bloggers and spaces for users’ comments.

UNAR - National Anti-Racial Discrimination Office

Our technological solutions have also been applied in the non-profit and institutional sector, as in the case of the support provided to UNAR to monitor discriminatory activity. As an aid to the work carried out at the Contact Centre, which offers qualified listening services to those who report any type of discrimination, we have created a system for handling complaints, which also allows us to carry out research and compile reports on the most representative problems.
