Modeling the macroeconomic and distributional effects of Covid-19 and restarting scenarios (MODVid)

MODVid is a set of four complementary and interdependent work packages involving 6 PI's and about 20 partners from Unilu, STATEC, LISER and international institutions. Two WP's aim to inform public decisions during the crisis. They provide estimates of the macroeconomic, distributional, and epidemiological effects of the crisis and of restarting scenarios in Luxembourg. These outputs will be delivered within one to two months. Other WP's aim to inform public decisions in the aftermath of the crisis. They address medium-term effects on the industry and occupational structure of the labor for...

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...

Memomoti project

The digital revolution has provided people with access to unlimited resources and knowledge. Unfortunately, the processes for learning have not evolved to align with this new paradigm. Students ask 'why can't we play instead of learning'? Educators ask 'why can't I get my students to engage'? The question everyone should be asking is 'why can't we learn while we are playing? EduGamiTec is ready to radically change traditional education and digital entertainment! Multiple studies show that children spend on average 15 hours (McAfee & Center for Media and Child Health) per week playing ...

Digital travel certificate for frontier workers

The Covid-19 pandemic brought a large number of territories to confine populations to slow the spread of the virus. The special status of frontier workers has led several states, including Luxembourg, to require the production of a specific. This is signed by the employer so that workers from neighboring countries can enter the territory on a professional basis. In Luxembourg, this certificate currently in paper format is valid for the entire duration of confinement. We propose the creation of a web portal (and a mobile app) allowing the generation of a digital movement certificate for cros...

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 ...

Compulsory health training for future pandemics

One of the key challenges that many countries, particularly Luxembourg, is facing during the pandemic is the shortage of health practitioners. Without a doubt being trained in health practice has lots of restrictions, rules, and regulations as it is concerned with lives of human beings. Nevertheless, what I'm suggesting here needs lots of refinement and consultations with health experts/professionals to draw out a final applicable solution. The basic idea is that since this pandemic, as many politicians have put it out, is a war against humanity, I'm suggesting that we prepare our citizens ...

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 ...
