Telecom Italia identifies the projects to be implemented by the following means:

  • consultation with the stakeholders and direct contact with civil society organisations;
  • partnership projects with stakeholders and associations;
  • benchmarking against the other European TLC operators;
  • involvement in industry associations;sharing knowledge of industry-related issues with the other Group functions;
  • external lobbying in response to social emergencies (e.g. earthquakes).

Each project is implemented in 4 stages:

1. planning: which identifies the objectives to be achieved, the beneficiaries of the project, the timescales of the individual activities, the overall duration of the initiative, the methods used to monitor the project and the budget;

2. selection:

  • through public tenders, as in the case with many projects pursued by the TIM Foundation;
  • by direct decision of the Company, following the  stakeholder, consultation process, consistent with the guidelines for voluntary contributions to the community (see document on the right side of this page);

3. management: normally administered through partnerships or framework agreements. Sometimes cash disbursements are made, leaving the management of the activity to the beneficiary organisation/association;

4. control: takes place in different ways according to the specific features of the individual projects.
