Integration of reliable technologies for protection against Covid-19 in healthcare and high risk areas

Project Details


The Project will employ leading scientific and engineering expertise in Latvia to develop advanced solutions that address challenges that emerged during COVID-19 outbreak regarding the use of protective technologies in healthcare areas and corresponds to Research Programme Topic 6.7. The Project will promote cooperation between 9 higher education and research institutions in Latvia to perform applied science and develop systems applicable in healthcare and other high-risk areas, e.g., public transport. The overall aim of the project is to increase the resilience and quality of the services in healthcare areas during COVID-19 and other infectious diseases by improving and developing reliable technologies and concepts. The results of the project will facilitate to the wellbeing of healthcare professionals, public services and general public as such by reducing workload, health risks, work-related stress and service time. The Project scientific results will be published in scientific articles in international scientific journals and upon possibility presented in scientific conferences and national seminars especially with the aim to inform target audience. The prototypes of the developed technologies will be demonstrated in at least one of the hospitals in Latvia. Implementation of the project will also facilitate the involvement of students and young scientists in research as they will be represented in research staff of almost all Project partners.
