|What does Lecrinnova do?||Our main objective||We have a clear purpose|
Of shared value from the beginning, the main objective is to integrate processes and methods of territorial activity with advanced, innovative technologies.
To collaborate with public and private institutions to work on an authentic social innovation project that can be replicated in any other territory.

Women play a key role in developing the rural environment. Let us make them more visible and improve their opportunities and not let their talent drain away to other regions.
Discrimination against women in rural areas is, on the one hand, “vertical”, as women tend to have worse positions in the labour hierarchy: they own 32% of farms, but they are only managers in 22% of cases. Family structure in the rural economy manifests itself as a less visible role for women, who participate “spouse” and not as “owner” in the company, especially in agricultural ones.
On the other hand, there is also “horizontal” discrimination in sector distribution, as women’s occupation in the services sector (78.5%) is 37 points higher than that of men.

Women devote a great deal of time to domestic work and house-keeping, which are unpaid and invisible. In rural areas, furthermore, the gap in time devoted to these tasks is even more pronounced:
|House-keeping||5h 39 min||3h 40 min|
|Domestic work||5h 31 min||1h 48 min|

Depopulation is one of Spain’s greatest challenges. Providing solutions to the problem of depopulation will be critical to advancing sustainable Spain, so that each territory, however small, can have access to the opportunities it needs to develop. We should not waste part of our country's social, economic, human, cultural or environmental capital and must close the territorial divide to work towards a sustainable Spain.
...and, at this rate, the country is expected lose more than half a million people by 2031 and more than five million inhabitants by 2066
Depopulation not only represents a territorial challenge, it is also a demographic challenge, especially for rural inland areas. For every child under 15, there are two adults aged over 65 in six out of ten municipalities, and there are no children aged under five in more than 1,000 towns and villages.
An aging population raises problems of health care, dependency and, in general terms, maintenance and balance of the Welfare State itself.
Blockchain is a large database that enables transactions to be carried out between users of the network in a secure and irreversible way, using networks that understand each other, without needing to be centralised. The information is grouped into blocks, which are linked together in a chain, and hence the name of this new cutting-edge technology: “blockchain”.
Precision Agriculture applied new technologies based on sensors and information systems to optimise crop yields thanks to remote images of the land and processing multiple sources of data that are continually analysed and interpreted. Drones are very useful for this activity, because they allow accurate high-resolution maps to be obtained.
Precision Agriculture is a clear example of the usefulness of new technologies for rural areas:
A productive and sustainable agricultural association which aims to accelerate innovation in the agricultural sector and achieve a competitive agriculture that achieves greater yields with fewer resources and a reduced environmental impact.
H2020 is a programme that funds research and innovation projects in various thematic areas with an overall budget of €77.02 billion. Within the agri-food and forestry sector, mainly focussed on the social challenge of food safety, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine research and marine and inland waters and bio-economy, the budget is €3.85 billion.
