Public application for travel optimization on the territory

The Covid-19 pandemic brought a large number of territories to confine populations in order to slow the spread of the virus. On a daily basis, the need of the population to be able to anticipate their (rare) trips according to the expected attendance has already been expressed. We propose the creation of a web and mobile application allowing to display the frequentation and the concentration of population in the form of dashboards and interactive maps. Based on generic geolocation data from local telephone operators, the information would indicate to the user the areas with little / no traf...

COVoiceID - Identification of COVID-19 from Voice

COVoiceID project proposes a machine learning based system that will use patient's voice and cough to detect repeating patterns, with the aim to discriminate between voices of healthy individuals and COVID-19 patients. COVID-19 is a respiratory condition, affecting breathing and voice, and causing, among other symptoms, dry cough, sore throat, excessively breathy voice and typical breathing patterns. These are all conditions that can make patients' voice distinctive, creating recognizable voice signatures. The ability to successfully identify COVID-19 patients from their voice will heavily...

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...

COVID-19 time-space analysis on Twitter

Coronavirus outbreak perception in the population of the greater region on Twitter: spatio-temporal distribution and salient subtopics.

CORONASTEP+ - The value of sewage surveillance to provide new insights on the circulation of SARS...

Infection with SARS-CoV-2, the etiologic agent of the current COVID-19 pandemic, is accompanied by excretion of the virus in the feces. Therefore, we assume that the quantification of SARS CoV-2 in sewage allows the prevalence of infections in the population to be monitored by wastewater-based epidemiology, particularly when clinical trial capacity is limited. The overall objective of the CORONASTEP+ project is to determine to which extent SARS-CoV-2 is present in domestic wastewater and to determine how far wastewater monitoring can be used to track and understand the circulation of SARS-...

ReDesign Europe - Post-Pandemic Paradigm Change in EU Law

This project aims to respond to the vacuum of sound legal rules and principles into which decision-makers risk to sink while developing constructive trajectories for the post-pandemic crisis legislation. Such vacuum places significant risks to the legal frameworks that have governed our societies in the context of European integration, under the changes prompted by reactions to the crisis

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 ...

Leveraging Systems Biology to Target Hyperinflammation in COVID-19

The emergence of COVID-19 pandemic implies new challenges for the Health Systems worldwide. A small percentage of the patients require hospitalisation and specialised attention in Intensive Care Units (ICUs). Furthermore, accumulating evidence suggests that a subgroup of patients with severe COVID-19 might have a cytokine storm syndrome. Therefore, the main goal of the proposal is to elucidate the potential role of cytokine storm in COVID-19 disease severity, and to propose novel strategies for counteracting this hyperinflammatory response. In this context, we propose to develop a single...
