Born in Biella, North-Western Italy, in 1983, Marco Soggetto is a trained and committed employee, researcher, author and translator. His career and personality could be summarized by few key points: passion, constant search for mutual comprehension and win/win agreements, situational awareness, "never give up" attitude.
Holding a BA degree in Political Sciences (2006) and a summa cum laude MA degree (2008), author of several books and handbooks, Marco started working at the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei in January 2009, working in Milan and focusing on the SchoolNET and Giornalismoscientifico.it projects.
He subsequently joined the Eni Award Scientific Secretariat, serving in Milan and Rome. He supported the activities of the Eni Award 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Editions, during the yearly process of research and Candidates’ assistance.
The last years saw Marco training the new Scientific Secretariat team and managing of the Eni Award 2014, 2015 and 2016 Call for Proposals. Among other personal and professional partnerships, in 2014 and 2015, Marco also joined FEEM's research programme "Economy and Society".
In 2016 he earned an executive master on Communication and Multi-channel marketing, focused on innovation, technology and new media, in order to reshape and strengthen at best his expertise and professional knowledge. In 2016 and 2017, Marco switched his professional career to a more industrially and technically-related course, centred on textile industry.
Back in his hometown Biella, he joined POINTEX, the Textile Innovation Hub of the Regione Piemonte with formal and commercial brokerage duties, serving in the role of membership marketing officer and Research Manager for EU programs.
An enthusiastic climber, Marco deeply loves photography, alpine exploration, as well as literature, history and international relations. He is fond of the purest classic music, English-written literature and English-spoken negotiation.
