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 ...

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...

Perceived economic vulnerability and intra-household behaviour adjustment (ADJUST)

The project ADJUST aims at mapping and analysing the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and accompanying quarantine measures on social inequalities in Luxembourg. Theoretically, it seeks to advance the international research agenda in response to the pandemic by particularly scrutinising its short- and medium-term effects on social inequalities on the micro level, i.e. on individuals and households. It particularly focuses on strategies developed within the households in order to contain vulnerability, and their societal implications. The overall hypothesis is that pandemic leads to the reorga...

Young People and COVID-19 (YAC) - Social, Economic, and Health Consequences of Infection Preventi...

Whereas adolescents and young adults are less affected by severe progressions of COVID-19, the measures to prevent and control the infection interfere disproportionally with their development. There are short-term and long-term impacts on their educational and professional careers and their psycho-social development (gaining autonomy from parents, building relationships). Non-intended negative social, economic and health consequences by the measures taken to prevent and control the COVID-19 pandemic are therefore particularly likely for young people. It is important to identify and understa...

Coronajhemp: A COVID-19 Superhero For Luxembourg

The goal of this project is to enable quick access to trustworthy information and provide the Luxembourgish population with virtual assistance on topics related to COVID-19, towards the use of a chatbot. Moreover, a chatbot will help reduce the spread of wrong information among the population and relieve the existing governmental hotline for elder people. Users will be able to ask simple questions such as 'What are the symptoms of COVID-19?' or more subtle concerns like 'Where can I get tested?'. The chatbot could also be used to perform a quick diagnosis and assist the user with requesting...
