Organizing detection of Covid-19 through mobile app and web portal

In order to prevent new waves of Covid-19 epidemic infections, detection of the virus among the population appears as a strong tool. This would allow to identify active cases (with or without symptoms) that would stay isolated, not-yet infected people that could still be infected, and recovered patients that would be protected against a new infection. This clustering of population by detection, which is essential in an exit strategy, has to be supported by efficient logistic structures and information to population. We propose the creation of a web portal coupled to a public application tha...

Covid-19, Politics and Religion

The proposed interdisciplinary research will elaborate on the impact of COVID-19 on the social operation of religion at a Luxembourgish and European level. The research is divided in a theoretical and an empirical part. The theoretical part aims at identifying the place of religion as an element within the dominant discourse on COVID-19.The empirical approach will explore the potential changes in religiosity after COVID-19, as well as their possible reflection in party politics. In particular, it will explore the following research themes: a) The possible effect of COVID-19 on public opi...

Protection against Infection through regulatory law - ProLaw

The pandemic spread of the SARS-Cov-2 virus hit the states of liberal democracies unprepared. Medicine lacks both drugs and clinically tested vaccines, and the health system as such quickly proved to be structurally overburdened. Above all, the democratic constitutional states of the West were not legally prepared for the pandemic. In Luxembourg, the measures to contain the virus were initially based on a law dating from 1885, before the regulation of 18 March 2020 was introduced as a legal basis with reference to the establishment of the 'Etat de Crise' in accordance with Art. 32.4 of the ...

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 ...

EICEL: Effects & Impulses of COVID-19 on/for teaching development in Luxembourg

EICEL will investigate the effects of the distance learning period (as a COVID-19 prevention measure) in Luxembourgish schools on pupils, teachers, and families with regard to teaching and learning arrangements from an interdisciplinary perspective. The overall goal is to adapt and develop innovative teaching and learning practices and specific pedagogical methods of a digitally supported learning culture in Luxembourg. It will give essential impulses to teaching development for the 21st century for Luxembourg and beyond, in order to help reducing educational inequalities and to cope with t...

Socio-technical security of a platform for COVID-19 biomedical data sharing and vaccination

Medical data sharing is a service that, especially in the time of a pandemic, is pivotal in fostering collaborative medical research and in prompting a scientifically solid response in the safeguarding of public health. This project will use as use case a new platform for CODVIS-19 medical data research, currently in development by ITTM and Data Vaccinator, to guarantee that the platform protocols' are secure and GDPR compliant, while assessing and improving the platform's usability security. Meant to be used by medical professionals and patients the socio-technical security of the platform...

Tracking SARS-CoV-2 with Open Banking API

According to the health authorities , due to the highly contagious potential of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19 desease), the formal preventive quarantine has been replaced by an isolation strategy early March. However, such strategy cannot last for an undetermined period of time, since there is no concrete date for releasing a vaccine or discovering an effective medicine. The return of people to normal activities will probably happen gradually, but still it will create a new potential peak of cases if not made carefully. Thus, a post-isolation strategy needs to be well planned as the next phase....

DECARTES

Decontaination using Augmented Reality To Ensure Safety Decontamination and cleaning of areas infected with Covid-19 is a significant problem. In particular, how to ensure that operatives correctly clean all areas. This project will build on work from several H2020 and FNR projects to look at how to decontaminate spaces using augmented reality techniques but with a focus on Covid-19. Using visualisation techniques combined with computer vision and other tracking technologies, users will be able to see where the trainees have cleaned, and areas that they have not cleaned. The primary purp...
