Host genetics of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is a global crisis creating severe disruptions across the economy and health system. Known risk factors for severe forms of COVID-19 disease include age, male sex, and comorbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular diseases. Irrespective of these risk factors, some succumbing to the disease are previously healthy and relatively young. Hence, it has been hypothesized that the genetic background of the individuals might play a role in this differential immune response. In order to understand the role of genetics in COVID-19 immune response, the internat...

Moving in the new reality, a mobility web portal to advise national and international travel

With more countries gradually lifting mobility restrictions and opening borders after lockdown, it has become more complicated know to decide whether travel is allowed and safe and which restrictions are still in place. We aim to build a web portal sourced from government and official sources where users can safely inform themselves about the possibilities of travel. Our target is to help with: - Encouraging travel within the established restrictions - Discouraging travel with lack of knowledge: Reducing risks, border congestions, deportations, forced quarantines and unnecessary ...

Novel Chitosan nanoparticle drug delivery technology (Novochizol™) allows the formulation of a wi...

C2 PHARMA is in early stage of developing, testing, validating a novel Chitosan nanoparticle drug delivery technology (Novochizol™) applicable to a wide range of drugs to formulate them into aerosols with unique properties: 1. Strong adherence to the tissue where the aerosol is administered 2. Sustained release of active ingredients, locally, without systemic distribution 3. Biocompatibility with inherent anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties 4. Aerosol stability 5. Fast to manufacture (at lab scale at this stage, non-GMP) Novochizol™ aerosol formulations may be of high ...

DECORUM: Distribution of ECOnomic impacts and Recovery Under covid19 induced Market restrictions

Given the sudden disruption in market activity arising from quarantine of labour due to the covid19 pandemic, it is imperative to investigate the economic impacts and the possible means of a speedy recovery. The disruption of national and global supply chains has had an impact on the demand. Certain products have seen a surge in demand (especially necessities and medical supplies) while other commodities have dropped out of reckoning as they are relatively lower in the priority list in this meltdown. It is of paramount importance to keep economic activity operating to ensure the welfare of ...

Development of a service platform for import of international trade, e.g. medical protective clothing

The international trading platform TEGGS combines customs and logistics. The current COVID-19 pandemic in Europe requires two things: Fast delivery of medical equipment and transparent quality management products. Medical equipment such as face masks are produced almost entirely outside the European Union. tuomi uses its expertise in NFC technology to allow the buyer to exactly track the transportation and manufacturing process of the product.

Keeping our Eyes open on Developing Countries - Coping with Humanitarian and (illegal) Migration ...

As European countries restart their economies, they will also consider reopening their internal and external borders. What will they do with respect to countries where the Covid-19 is not yet under control? In particular, the control over external borders is expected to remain for a (much) longer period if developing countries are unable to contain the spread of the virus. European countries, with or without coordination, are likely to close their borders and restrict entry to people from Africa and other poor regions. Such restrictions would affect either the selection of the destination ...

LuxShield: Blocking COVID-19's return in workplaces and public venues

Reopening public and private workplaces in Luxembourg creates a significant risk of a rebound in COVID-19 transmission. But, keeping them closed generates a persistent negative impact on jobs and economic growth. Covid-19 is transmitted in confined, high density spaces with a high probability of sustained close contact. With 45% of workers in Luxembourg commuting from abroad, Luxembourgish workplaces will need to tackle this problem head-on. To block resurgences of COVID-19 and prevent future nation-wide lock-downs, three factors are critical: 1) knowing when it is safe to reopen public ...
