Acea turns the spotlight on the Rome Film Festival 2023
For years Acea has been engaged in projects involving schools and the local area to bring young people closer to the world of work. In continuity with previous programs, “IdeAzione” (IdeAction), “La Scuola che vorrei” (the School I’d like), “GenerAzione Digitale”(Digital GenerAction) e “GenerAzione Connessa” (Connected GenerAction). In 2023, the Acea Group initiated, in collaboration with the Consortium ELIS, a “GenerAzione2030” (GenerAction 2030), the new school program of work-related learning, now called PCTO (Paths for soft skills and carrier guidance).
The objective of this path, which involves about 400 students from 13 schools including Industrial Arts /Technology Institutes and High schools in 4 regions (Lazio, Tuscany, Umbria, Campania), is to enable the students to deepen their knowledge of the company and its business. The participants, divided into teams, presented innovative and sustainable ideas for the development of creative solutions on project work identified by the Group Companies.
New in this edition dedicated to class V students, is the module on carrier guidance "Acea orienta" (Acea counsels), which provides a confrontation between the Group's human resources and students to delve into the skills of the professional profiles most in demand in the market, and accompany them to face selection interviews with greater awareness by enhancing their experiences and skills.
Collaborative projects with high schools represent an important opportunity for Acea to confirm its commitment to communities and territories.

Edition 2022 - GenerAzione Connessa
The training course of the 2022 edition, carried out in a fully digital version, was focused on the themes of sustainability and innovation for the protection of the environment. The students were involved in the “Digital Creathon” creative marathon and responded to the challenge launched by the Acea Group on a new development model centred on a conscious use of natural resources.
The winners of the 2022 edition
Team Smart Under Water with the MicRobot project, a device for identifying microplastics in water.
Team Smart Lux with the Intelligent public lighting project based on sensors.
We are always looking for collaborations with the university world because cooperation with these organisations contributes to innovation and development within the business and the territory. In recent years, we have strengthened our relationships with some of the major universities, such as Tor Vergata, Roma Tre, La Sapienza, Lumsa, University of Tuscia, Politecnico of Milan, Sant’Anna of Pisa and University of Napoli Federico II.
Acea Group’s partnership with the free computer programming school 42 Rome LUISS is an example of our commitment to training activities, dedicated to people willing to develop their digital skills and give their contribution to the technological transformation of our country.
We have renewed the conventions for curricular and extra-curricular internships with the Universities of Roma Tre, Tor Vergata, La Sapienza, LUISS Guido Carli, Uni Marconi, Bocconi, University of International Studies of Rome - UNINT, University of Cassino and Southern Lazio - UNICAS and with the Gabriele D'Annunzio University of Chieti - Pescara. We also initiated new contacts and relationships with the placements departments of the Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna, the Polytechnic University of Turin, the University of Bari Aldo Moro, the University of Camerino, the Parthenope University of Naples, the University of Pisa and the Universities of Palermo, Catania and Messina.
Finally, during the year, a scientific cooperation agreement was signed with the Department of Earth, Environmental and Resource Sciences of the University of Naples Federico II and with the Vesuvius Observatory for the design and implementation of a hydrogeological and microbiological monitoring network for groundwater.
Thanks to these collaborations, every year we activate training internships and curricular apprenticeships and we hire young graduates in the various companies of the Group.
Again, with regard to training, we put professional skills of our people at disposal during university courses and masters or technical projects. In 2022, our colleagues spoke as lecturers or with company testimonials in masters programmes that dealt, in particular, with issues related to energy, the environment, sustainability and innovation.
