Lithuanian Centre for Social Sciences and AgriFood Lithuania organised the first session of the Living Lab established under the Horizon Europe project Grass Ceiling on June 12. The participants of the Living Lab include eight women-farmers engaged in agricultural and rural innovations. The men farmers were also present and contributed to revealing the differences between men and women innovators.
A focus group exercise was carried out during the meeting. The exercise will identify the role of women innovators in agriculture and rural areas alongside the major factors and expectations for the innovative activities. The results will be compared across the countries represented in the Grass Ceiling project to develop policy recommendations for EU agriculture and rural development.
