ExpertEye

Leveraging medical expertise is in times of the COVID-19 pandemic a world challenge. Tele-medicine, the remote delivery of healthcare services through technology, can be a solution. The goal of project 'ExpertEye' is to provide tele-medicine for COVID-19 scenarios such that the onsite care practitioners receive live and handsfree expert interactive medical feedback, while simultaneously acting on the feedback and implementing the advice to the patient in front of them. ExpertEye, used with Smart Glasses, aids in the communication between healthcare personnel working in a negative pressure r...

Toward alternative geographies of Luxembourg's relational urbanisation (ALTGEO)

This project seeks to explore the particular challenges of the COVID-19 disease for the relational urbanisation of Luxembourg and aims to identify possible alternative geographies for the Grand Duchy. It acknowledges the need to develop strategies for mid- or long-term adaptation to COVID-19 and associated policy measures, and will therefore focus on the geographical dimension of the problem. In our previous GLOBAL research project (C15_SR_10352117), we approached Luxembourg as having undergone relational urbanisation. Cities are relational in their ability to extract streams of profit from...

Public Check-In

This project aims to design and prototype 'Public Check-In', a governmental tool to help the safe exit from a pandemic lockdown while preserving citizens' privacy. 'Public Check-In' is a KPI-based system for quick, secure, and privacy-oriented communication of potential contacts with people who tested positive against nCOV-19, and it should be enforced during the limited of the pandemic situation. It proposes a novel architectural approach both to track sensitive and linked information and to provide targeted notification while protecting the users' privacy rights. The digital system wi...

Anonymity Preserving Self Reporting System

The idea is to provide citizens and residents of Luxembourg with a way to publicly and anonymously report the town they live in, upon testing positive for the corona virus. The resulting figure will be displayed on a map, either for government or public consumption. Allowing decision makers and/or individuals to better inform their actions.

Visual Public Protection Disaster Relief and Critical Infrastructure

The aim of the Visual PCI project is to develop an IT platform to assist crisis managers and critical infrastructure planners. The platform will provide a new approach to risk assessment and will visually present the essential elements of Public Protection and Disaster Recovery (PPDR) resources and the Critical Infrastructure (CI) functions as required by crisis management and Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) and planning. Real time data input will provide situational awareness. Simulations will support planning and crisis management by considering population behaviour as well as de...

COVID19-induced changes to the plasma proteome

Studies focussing on human coronavirus found so far seven different viruses including SARS, MERS and COVID19. SARS, MERS and COVID19 present with various flu-like symptoms up to respiratory distress. Secondary symptoms include kidney problems, cardiovascular problems and neurological signs, like headache and nausea. In the case of the SARS infection, it has been shown that the virus can invade the central nervous system in patients and laboratory animals. The infection of epithelial cells by a coronavirus will lead to a change of the cellular protein composition in response to the virus' ...

MESSEQ - MEthodology for Simulation and Selection of Economic Quarantine exit scenarios

Introduction - One of the main challenges in the crisis period we are going through is to choose the right scenario for leaving quarantine or even resuming partial quarantine if necessary. The scenarios to be analysed must combine public health and economic and social impact. Such an initiative should be carried out in collaboration with government decision-making bodies such as Ministry of Economy, HCPN... Objective - This project would then make it possible to simulate and test all the possible scenarios for a gradual exit from containment while limiting the risk of contagion and optimis...

MicroRNA biomarkers of COVID-19 severity

The Cardiovascular Research Unit of LIH proposes to apply its know-how on RNA biomarkers to identify circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) able to predict COVID-19 severity. This project is included in COVID-19 Task force WP02 and aims to fulfill the medical need of identifying patients at high risk of developing complications after infection by SARS-CoV-2 virus. The discovery of novel prognostic biomarkers will help tailoring healthcare to each individual for patient's benefit. Considering the importance of the inflammatory storm on disease severity and patient outcome, we will focus on inflamma...
