An Educational Hub for the Mediterranean Area In Rome

Vincenzo Boccia, President of Luiss: University Education is the Precondition for Social Development, Transitive Skills Are the Key

The President of Luiss, Vincenzo Boccia

Vincenzo Boccia, president of Luiss, aims to create in Rome an educational hub for the Mediterranean area creating networks of knowledge, diplomatic, economic and commercial, where Italy must play a central role.

ROME, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — An innovative learning approach focused on interdisciplinarity, Rome’s Luiss University is facing the challenges of higher education in a world where epochal matters: environment, economic crisis, political and diplomatic tensions, migrations, commercial regulations and digital capitalism, require international solutions. There is growing pressure not only on institutions and enterprises but also on higher education institutions. For this reason, Vincenzo Boccia, president of Luiss, aims to create in Rome an educational hub for the Mediterranean area creating networks of knowledge, diplomatic, economic and commercial, where Italy must play a central role.

A long-term plan proposes a soft power operation that will last for the next five to ten years and which sees Luiss at the forefront among the new universities that are emerging in the Mediterranean area, between the EU countries and North Africa. “Our sensitivity on the issue of the creation of a Euro-Mediterranean network of universities is very high, and we share the idea of a long-term strategy in this direction,” says Boccia. Luiss is the 22nd university in QS ranking of political and international studies and the 10th in Europe. And it has long since developed education opportunities for students from the Mediterranean, Africa and the Middle East intending to support Italy and neighbouring countries in nurturing a class of reliable leaders, committed to the development of their communities and connected to Italy. “University education is the precondition for social development, and we must push for an expansion of transitive skills. They are needed not only for business but for every aspect of social life. It is, therefore, necessary to build bridges for university connections with the Mediterranean and African areas, thinking in the long term,” says Boccia. Italy must make a strong commitment, but a far-reaching operation is also needed. Boccia continues: “We need to increase the number of university graduates, which is now less than 30%, and increase opportunities with scholarship plan, not as pure welfarism, but as a major action of national interest.”

Hitachi Energy supports huge step in Germany’s energy transition

HVDC Light® transmission system will transfer vast amounts of renewable energy for up to 5 million households and help Germany achieve its 2045 carbon neutrality goal

Zurich, Switzerland, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hitachi Energy, a global technology leader that is advancing a sustainable energy future for all, today announced it has won a major order from TenneT and TransnetBW, two of Germany’s four transmission system operators, to supply a transmission solution for the SuedLink DC4 high-voltage direct current (HVDC) interconnection between the north and south of the country.

SuedLink DC4 is one of the most important power grid and energy transition projects in Germany. It will play a crucial role in Germany’s energy transition, enabling a reduction in the use of fossil fuels and helping the country achieve carbon neutrality by 2045.*1

Using Hitachi Energy’s HVDC Light® technology, SuedLink DC4 will transfer up to 2,000 megawatts of emission-free electricity, enough to power 5 million German households.*2 The link will efficiently transmit electricity for 550 kilometers underground, at ±525 kilovolts, sending wind power from the north to the industrial south, or alternatively solar power from the south to the north when needed.

“We are proud to play a crucial role in this very important investment in Germany’s transition to renewable energy and carbon neutrality,” said Niklas Persson, Managing Director of Hitachi Energy’s Grid Integration business. “HVDC Light is the enabling technology for large-scale transfers of renewable energy, both onshore and offshore.”

“SuedLink will form the backbone of the energy transition in Germany. With the award of the DC4 high-voltage direct current system to Hitachi Energy, we are now moving towards the realization of this important power link,” says Tim Meyerjürgens, Chief Operations Officer of TenneT.

Hitachi Energy will supply an HVDC Light converter station at each end of SuedLink DC4 to convert AC power from the transmitting grid to DC for delivery through the link, and back to AC for transfer to the receiving grid. The contract includes three cable section stations to speed up fault detection in the link.

As part of its long-term commitment to Germany’s energy transition, Hitachi Energy has recently won or completed orders for solutions that integrate large-scale renewables*3. These include the converter stations for the NordLink*4 HVDC interconnector between Germany and Norway, the converter stations for the connection of the 900-megawatt DolWin5 offshore wind farm in the German North Sea, the Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution which connects the German power grids with two offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea and Denmark, and power quality solutions to enable more renewable energy to flow from north to south Germany.

Note to editors:

Hitachi Energy’s HVDC solution combines world-leading expertise in HVDC converter valves; the MACH™ digital control platform*5, which enables renewables integration and manages voltage and frequency disturbances in the grid; converter power transformers and high-voltage switchgear; as well as system studies, design and engineering, supply, installation supervision and commissioning.

HVDC Light® is a voltage source converter technology developed by Hitachi Energy. It is the preferred technology for many grid applications, including interconnecting countries, integrating renewables and “power-from-shore” connections to offshore production facilities. HVDC Light’s defining features include uniquely compact converter stations and exceptionally low electrical losses.

Hitachi Energy pioneered commercial HVDC technology almost 70 years ago and has delivered more than half of the world’s HVDC projects.

Rueil-Malmaison (France), August 3 2022Schneider Electric, the global leader in energy management and automation, has ranked first in the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25: Europe Top 15, retaining its position for three consecutive years.

This latest recognition follows last month’s announcement that the company had ranked second in the Gartner global ranking, and showcases the best practices of Europe’s Top 15 company supply chains for 2022 in conjunction with The Gartner Supply Chain Global Top 25 for 2022.

“We think this latest recognition from Gartner and our peers is particularly meaningful given the highly volatile and disruptive environment supply chains have faced over the last year,” said Stéphane Poittevin, Senior Vice President Global Supply Chain Europe, Schneider Electric “Our commitment to our customers and the planet compels us to continue to invest in our supply chain for greater resilience and sustainability.”

Sustainability is at the core of Schneider’s purpose and mission, and the first pillar in its supply chain strategy, STRIVE (Sustainable, Trusted, Resilient, Intelligent, Velocity and Efficiency). Now in its second year, the company has accelerated its transformation toward becoming the most agile, innovative, planet and customer-centric supply chain.

Earlier this year, Schneider was recognized by Gartner in the Power of the Profession™ Supply Chain Awards. for its Adaptive Machine Learning Driver ‘Self-Healing’ Supply Chain in the Process or Technology Innovation of the Year category. The Schneider platform optimizes performance-related parameters such as safety stock quantity, minimum order quantities, and lead times on a real-time basis through machine learning. This has resulted in savings of more than €100 million.

Earlier this year Schneider’s factory in Le Vaudreuil, France, was recognized as a Sustainability Lighthouse by the World Economic Forum – the second for Schneider Electric and only of only six worldwide.

About Gartner Top 25 Supply Chain

The Supply Chain Top 25 ranking comprises two main components: business performance and opinion. Business performance in the form of public financial and ESG (environmental, social, governance) data provides a view into how companies have performed in the past, while the opinion component offers an eye to future potential and reflects leadership in the supply chain community. These two components are combined into a total composite score.

Gartner analysts derive a list of companies from a combination of the Fortune Global 500 and the Forbes Global 2000. In an effort to maintain the list of companies evaluated at a manageable level, a general annual revenue threshold of $12 billion has been applied.
