Earth Observation Data for Epidemic Management (EODEM)

Previous experience with using Earth Observation (EO) data for monitoring and mitigating the spread of the Ebola virus shows that EO data can be an important tool in the response to global pandemics such as COVID-19. Indeed, in the European Union, Copernicus data is already being used to monitor the various effects of COVID-19 and the response to it. This project seeks to build on these experiences to understand how EO capabilities and resources can be implemented to better manage epidemics and pandemics as well as what measures are needed to protect from the wrongful uses of these resource...

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.

Mobile people in times of enforced immobility - Strategies of coping with COVID 19 confinement am...

Covid-19 has changed the mobility reality of (young) people as international borders have been closed. The COVID-19 crisis suddenly introduces words like 'confinement', 'quarantine' and 'self-isolation' does not limit only freedom of movement particularly for those who have not experienced strict border management controls in their life time. The aim of this project is to understand how young mobile people (18-30 years old) experience this period of confinement and how it impacts on their communicational and social behavior. The contrary of enforced immobility and a mobile live are in the m...

Exploring emerging initiatives for a new societal model

As an NGO promoting the collective intelligence and the technology for citizens, being part of the Open Government Partnership commitment #5 of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and in collaboration with the Univeristy of Luxembourg, we would like to explore 1) The institutional initiatives emerging from the covid-19 crisis and 2) how citizens perceive this crisis and the changes that may emerge from it. The later focus appear to be particularly relevant as past studies have demonstrate that opinions emerging from social media and online forums are increasingly useful to nowcast and forecast th...

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...
