Certification and Global Network
A quality system open to confrontation
Finmeccanica is aware that the excellence of people and their performance passes even through continuous attention to quality processes and methodologies used to manage them and it has requested and received by the International Organization Globe Certification the Quality Certification UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 for the processes of “Planning, Allocation and Project Management Education and Human Resource Development”.

Global Knowledge Network: Finmeccanica and the academic world
In a world where knowledge represents more and more the real critical factor for success and in which there is an increasing acceleration of the opportunities offered by technological change, Finmeccanica has chosen to compare with a global network consisting of Universities, Research Centers and Authorities.
At international level the relationships activated with universities and departments are excellent and ensure high scientific quality in different disciplines and makes Finmeccanica an organization able to identify and integrate the contribution of knowledge and experiential of different actors.
The network of actors is rich and complex. To date there are 415 relationships with 110 Universities, including 50 in Italy and 60 abroad. Of the 415 relationships, 319 relate to Italian Universities (77%) and 96 foreign Universities (23%).
