We want to find solutions for keeping the society open dispite of future pandemics.
Controlling the spreading of pandemics, like Covid-19, requires a comprehensive approach to cover all relevant transmission routes.
The diversity of countermeasures is key to fighting pandemics. Finding effective protection strategies towards pandemics, and infectious diseases in general, requires a multidisciplinary approach and close co-operation between different specialists, like medical doctors and engineers.
The E3 project wants to harness modern science and technology to create effective countermeasures to prevent the spreading of novel infectious diseases.
The aim is to have technical solutions already in place during the current pandemic and before the next pandemic emerges, there would be technological solutions available and installed in indoor environments mitigating the transmission of pathogens in spaces where people meet.
The project will primarily study the different pathways of pathogens and viruses, virus control and detection methods that can be used to find solutions to keep indoor air clean and safe in offices, public spaces, and vehicles. The main goal is to develop solutions that allow the various functions of society to continue uninterrupted and people to continue to move and live safely despite the epidemics and pandemics.
