Did you know that LIST currently has eight Coronavirus research projects in progress helping Luxembourg as well as beyond the borders?
The projects, all with backing from the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR), range from several COVID-19 virus detection schemes, analysis projects, to mapping, literature aggregation, knowledge graph creation, and decision-making aid tool.
The outcome of all research projects will benefit Luxembourg, but several of them reach beyond the borders to help in the quest for COVID-19 research and prevention around the world.
Details and links of each project - and the leading researchers behind them - are below:
CORONASTEP+ - Monitoring evolution of COVID-19 virus in wastewater
Leslie Ogorzaly, coordinator of the CORONASTEP+ project, reveals the value of monitoring the evolution of COVID-19 in Luxembourg wastewater.
Research team’s Principal Investigator Muhannad Ismael explains how his team aims to provide health professionals a COVID-19 detection system based on audio signature
Viranostic – Detecting COVID-19 in the early stages
With the onset of COVID-19 infection, it can take some time before patients develop and recognise symptoms. Viranostic research is all about detection in the very early stages of infection, in some cases even before symptoms appear.
The ACTING NoW project, aims to provide the government and Luxembourg companies with a Coronavirus decision-making aid tool. Based on the principals of a “control tower”,acts as a digital tool similar to an automated dashboard
TIGER - Detecting and mapping COVID-19 across Luxembourg
A major part of the battle against the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic is detection and mapping and that’s exactly the focus at LIST of “Towards an Integrated Geospatial pandemic Response system” or TIGER project for short.
COLIBRI - Making the mountains of COVID-19 research publications accessible
The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in mountains of information and research publications available worldwide, so how do you find specific Coronavirus information you need? An issue the COLBRI project tackles.
HKG4COVID - Plotting COVID-19 evolution with comprehensive graphs
Creating graphs is key way of digesting knowledge and obtaining a snap shot of evolution of Coronavirus. This is the focus of HKG4COVID project
REBORN - Guarantee optimal recovery from COVID-19 crisis thanks to Machine Learning
How do we reconcile economic recovery and the risk of a new pandemic? Jean-Sébastien Sottet reveals the importance of the REBORN project in the identification of adequate deconfinement measures.
