Management of stocks of essential products in pharmacies

This project would aim at creating an informative app displaying stocks of essential products during the epidemic (hand sanitizer, masks, thermometers) in the pharmacies. This app would be accessible for public, and based on logistic databases and real-time updates from pharmacies.

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...

WINDFALL: Wireless Network Data Fusion for Analysing Indoor Social Distancing Levels

Contact tracing apps are designed to quickly identify and interrupt infection chains using communication technologies. While geolocation approaches have been considered at an early stage, the most promising solutions now rely on the use of Bluetooth and signal strength measurements. However, although these solutions can trace an infected person's contacts quickly, they suffer from significant issues, which suggest that the production of advanced social distancing indicators and manual tracing are still needed. WINDFALL will implement a platform for monitoring crowd behaviour patterns in ...

Covid-19 Detection by Cough and Voice Analysis (CDCVA)

Emergency service hospital center receives a huge number of calls in epidemic period, among these calls there are critical cases that need rapid intervention, it may be delayed to answer these cases. Therefore, we suggest a solution by giving an indication of health status of the person calling directly when hearing his voice and cough. This indicator depends on finding a degree of correspondence between the caller's voice, cough signatures and that of certain patients with the Covid-19 virus. The solution proposed by CDCVA project can also be used effectively by health professionals for re...

CoLiBri - COVID19 Literature Browser for Scientific Investigations

Researchers around the world are in a race against the clock to find treatments, vaccines and diagnosis methods for COVID19. A major hurdle lies in the necessity to digest an abundant scientific literature which grows by the day. Keeping up with such a growth requires appropriate visual text analytics software, combining the power of text mining algorithms with the flexibility of interactive visualizations. The CoLiBri proposal aims to give free access to the COVID19 researcher community around the world to the Papyrus literature visualization software developed at LIST (https://colibri...

Impact of the Covid-19 crisis on employment participation of older workers

The objective of this project is to investigate the impact of the current COVID-19 crisis on the employment participation of older workers in Luxembourg. Due to demographics shifts, improving the employment participation of older workers is essential in order to sustain the pension insurance system. In the context of the COVID-19 crisis, older workers need particular attention as the labor market is affected in a profound way. First, since the crisis, many employees are able to work remotely. However, sectors where telework is not a practical option such as construction, real estate, manufa...

What is the impact of random mixing on the spread of COVID-19 in Luxembourg?

Mathematical modelling of the spread of the SARS-COV-2 virus is being used around the world to measure the impact of non-pharmaceutical interventions and make predictions on the numbers of infected individuals and deaths. This project aims to build an agent-based model that can be used to measure the impact of random mixing between strangers, on the spread of COVID-19. While social security data can be used to construct a network of permanent home, work and school contacts, such data neglects the random mixing of strangers that takes place in, for example, bars, restaurants, shops and publi...

The new breathing therapy method based on short-term intermittent exposure to hypoxia in rehabili...

The current worldwide healthcare focus is on countering acute COVID-19 effects in emergency care patients. However, two distinct SARS-CoV-2 syndrome phases have been already identified: while the first acute phase is characterised by a prevalent respiratory syndrome, the second one which accompanies gradual respiratory syndrome recovery is marked by a prolonged bed rest syndrome and invasive mechanical ventilation sequelae. This means that following the acute infection stage, worldwide health services will have to cope with the significant secondary issue, namely large numbers of patients...
