Emerging spatial interactions in cities, towns and rural landscapes at a time of crises

This project will explore emerging spatial interactions in our towns, cities and rural areas during social distancing measures. New knowledge outlining the evolving uses of public spaces and infrastructures is essential to support our understanding of the unintended consequences of epidemic control decisions. As well as providing a discourse for public dialogue. We will gather an evidence base to inform public policy on the consequences of new spatial interactions and their consequences for urban and rural environments. Our findings will answer questions and predict the impact of behavioura...

Effect of the Pandemic on Air and Maritime traffic and the Atmosphere (EPAMA)

We will use existing databases to study the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic onto air and maritime traffic and consequently onto the atmosphere. Through this, the socio-economic and environmental impact of the disease can be better understood. This help to prepare for the future. In addition, it helps to understand what impact traffic has onto the atmosphere.

The role of air pollution in transmission and severity of COVID-19

Based on superficial inspection and anecdotal evidence, there appears to be a close correlation between being a hotspot area for COVID-19 prevalence or severity on one hand and air pollution on the other hand. For instance, the highest COVID-19 prevalence region in Italy (Lombardy) is also one of the most polluted areas of the country. This apparent correlation has led some researchers to hypothesise that air pollution may play a causal role in increasing COVID-19 transmission and severity. While such a link is plausible, as COIV-19 is a respiratory disease and as there are well-established...

Socio-economic impacts of COVID-19: collecting the data

The aim of this project is to investigate the socio-economic impact of COVID-19, including employment, activity and travel patterns, health behaviours and health. The COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing in Luxembourg and neighbouring countries. It is currently hoped that due to confinement measures the number of infected persons and deaths will decline in the near future. Public authorities in Luxembourg are considering to relieve the confinement measures to 'unlock' parts of economic and social life in the country as soon as the pandemic is becoming less severe and more 'manageable'. As Lu...
