Coronavirus (COVID-19): a priority for LIH
LIH is closely collaborating with the Health Directorate of the Luxembourg Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Higher Education and Research and all national players in the healthcare and public research ecosystem in order to mobilise knowledge, human and material resources to help contain the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The first step taken by “Research Luxembourg” — a joint initiative of the main players in Luxembourg's public research sector — was the establishment of a dedicated COVID-19 taskforce to coordinate communication and align efforts between Luxembourg’s research institutions, ministries and hospitals. Specifically, the taskforce will put the combined expertise of the LIH, LISER, LIST, LNS, University of Luxembourg and FNR at the service of the national healthcare system, under the supervision of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research.
This section centralises all the latest developments on the taskforce’s activities, LIH’s expertise and contribution to ongoing COVID-19 projects, news and press releases, as well as educational resources for the younger public and links to useful government resources.
