This is the R&D dimension in DCN, in which we focus in developing a collaborative socioeconomic model capable of identifying the fundamental problems we face in our society and of developing companies able to channel solutions to this problems with a global perspective.
Every year, we invest resources in advancing and changing this collaborative model. We progresivelly join in more agents, organizations and companies to build up together an economic model based on this dynamics.
Besides this, DCN coleads other initiatives in wich the search for problems and solutions is estressed. Some examples of these other ways are presented below.
Combinatory. Problems to solve.
Within the development of the economic ecosystem around innovation which embrace dcn endeavours, a big effort focuses on improving communication among the interested agents in the bio and tech sectors. The goal is to identify innovation areas in which to concentrate research, to validate the quality of technologies under development, to identify leading teams in their respective fields, to access to the needed research financing, to open the scientific world to the economic reality and to to support the development of all related entities.
As a matter of fact and dated June 2015, DCN and ITC have established a collaboration agreement in order to leverage the tecnology innovation ecosystem in ceramics.

Branding for Spain.
Since 2012 and together with Ismael Fernández Calero and his initiative Osadía, we are exploring the positioning of the Spanish society around the joy of life or Wonderful Life by Spain. So many centuries of golden decadency, watching precious metals and other treasures to come from America, allowed us to make it an art to be together, around a table, with a coffee, with good Jamón and good wine, under the shade of a tree or of a veranda.
Already back in 2005, Alfons Cornella edited in his Infonomía number 40 an article with a sinthesis of our Lucenes dcn 5 in which we coined the term Spanish Lifeware and explored the country potisioning that we could help to build.
Now we have to use this knowledge of living and potentiate it in our products and services in order to better compete in the XXI century combinatory of the trascendental problems the world is facing. From DCN we provide this extra energy to better position companies in our close universe.
Art of living.
Ismael Fernández Calero, DCN collaborator, contributes from his selective corner at Osadía Cultura with a subtle reflection of the meaning of the Art of Living we are pursuing.
The common senses link us more to the universal intelligence.
The art of living is the expression of the more sublime common sense and of the rest of the senses. I think it is one of the streams that best define the Epicureism, as Emilio Lledó explains in his little book with the same title, Epicureism.
The origin of every Human act, of any reflection, of any contact with reality is the unavoidable conviction of the sensation. It is the principal of any criteria of knowledge, that places its unmistaken security in the principle of any life and any wisdom. The return to sensitivity, or that the reduction to sensitivity can provide to the existence is, as a consequences, the best criteria of verification that nature offers us. Emilio Lledó, El Epicureísmo E. Taurus Pensamiento. 2011. p 88
