    During the COVID-19 pandemic, awareness about vulnerabilities in the health care sector increased. Experts from governments, civil society, and industry called for more cybersecurity regulation that clarifies responsibilities and expectations. Regulation is one answer, but some issues require other policy solutions, such as further international cooperation. ISSN:2296-0244

    La prise de conscience des vulnérabilités du secteur de la santé s’est développée pendant la pandémie de COVID-19. Les experts des pouvoirs publics, de la société civile et de l’industrie ont appelé à une plus grande règlementation de la cybersécurité afin de préciser les responsabilités et les attentes. Certains problèmes nécessitent toutefois d’autres réponses politiques, notamment une coopération internationale accrue. ISSN:2296-0228

    Since early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to lockdowns at national scales. These lockdowns resulted in large cuts of atmospheric pollutant emissions, notably related to the vehicular traffic source, especially during spring 2020. As a result, air quality changed in manners that are still currently under investigation. The robust quantitative assessment of the impact of lockdown measures on ambient concentrations is however hindered by weather variability. In order to circumvent this difficulty, an innovative methodology has been developed. The Analog Application for Air Quality (A3Q) method is based on the comparison of each day of lockdown to a group of analog days having similar meteorological conditions. The A3Q method has been successfully evaluated and applied to a comprehensive in situ dataset of primary and secondary pollutants obtained at the SIRTA observatory, a suburban background site of the megacity of Paris (France). The overall slight decrease of submicron particulate matter (PM1) concentrations (−14 %) compared to business-as-usual conditions conceals contrasting behaviors. Primary traffic tracers (NOx and traffic-related carbonaceous aerosols) dropped by 42 %–66 % during the lockdown period. Further, the A3Q method enabled us to characterize changes triggered by NOx decreases. Particulate nitrate and secondary organic aerosols (SOAs), two of the main springtime aerosol components in northwestern Europe, decreased by −45 % and −25 %, respectively. A NOx relationship emphasizes the interest of NOx mitigation policies at the regional (i.e., city) scale, although long-range pollution advection sporadically overcompensated for regional decreases. Variations of the oxidation state of SOA suggest discrepancies in SOA formation processes. At the same time, the expected ozone increase (+20 %) underlines the negative feedback of NO titration. These results provide a quasi-comprehensive observation-based insight for mitigation policies regarding air quality in future low-carbon urban areas.

    The conference contribution presented the case study from the future teacher education environment. The students of Art Education at the Charles University, Faculty of Education (Prague, Czech Republic) were asked to design worksheet with augmented reality (AR) in summer semester 2020 (February - May). The aim was to use AR as educational tool in distance Art Education. Lectures were interrupted with the COVID-19 pandemic and closure of faculty but continued in distance learning mode. This presentation focuses mainly on 1) the development of the augmented reality (from a historical and technological point of view); 2) the analysis of inspirational materials (examples of different artistic, design and educational solutions using AR); and 3) briefly describes the development of worksheets for gallery education with one group of students.

    The unprecedented events of the COVID-19 pandemic have generated an enormous amount of information and populated the Web with new content relevant to the pandemic and its implications. Visual information such as images has been shown to be crucial in the context of scientific communication. Images are often interpreted as being closer to the truth as compared to other forms of communication, because of their physical representation of an event such as the COVID-19 pandemic. In this work, we ask crowdworkers across four regions of Europe that were severely affected by the first wave of pandemic, to provide us with image search queries related to COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of this study is to understand the similarities/differences of the aspects that are most important to users across different locations regarding the first wave of COVID-19 pandemic. Through a content analysis of their queries, we discovered five common themes of concern to all, although the frequency of use differed across regions.

    Within the framework of task 5.2 of the European Joint Programme, HBM4EU, human biomonitoring guidance values (HBM-GVs) are derived for HBM4EU priority substances. The methodology applied to derive these values is described in the concept paper released in the HBM4EU task 5.2 workframe (HBM4EU concept paper) and published in a peer-reviewed journal (Apel et al., 2020). For the time being, HBM-GVs are derived in HBM4EU under inclusion of experts from the 30 partner countries. Future use and implementation will be discussed among partners and the EU Commission but are without prejudice to existing or ongoing risk assessment work in order to inform EU policy-making. Several HBM-GVs for the general and occupational population have already been derived for some phthalates and a substitute (DEHP, DPHP, DnBP, DiBP, BBzP, DINCH, see Lange et al., 2021), bisphenols (BPA (Ougier et al., 2021), BPS), cadmium (Lamkarkach et al., 2020) and recently for aprotic solvents (NEP, NMP, DMF, DMAC, see Deliverable D 5.9). During the production and the consultation phases of the deliverables describing the derivation of such HBM-GVs, interesting questions were raised and valuable comments have been received. Some of these comments may justify a refinement of the methodology of the derivation of HBMGVs as elaborated within HBM4EU by UBA and ANSES. Most of the HBM-GV proposals aimed to improve harmonization approaches for the two populations: general population and workers. It was then decided within task 5.2 to organise a workshop that was initially aimed to take place at ANSES in spring 2020. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the workshop was postponed and held virtually over three afternoons, from November 4th to 6th. Topics that have been discussed are related to: How to address the differences between the derivation of HBM-GVGenPop and HBM-GVworker? Toxicokinetics and modelling aspects Selection of (exposure) biomarkers (BM) and matrices Level of confidence (LoC) associated to HBM-GVs How to deal with non-threshold substances in the occupational field? The current status of the strategy to evaluate HBM results for mixtures, exemplary for phthalates In the current deliverable, a summary of the main discussions and proposals for the refinement of the methodology for the derivation of the HBM-GVs is reported. These proposals will be taken up in future HBM-GV derivations, if appropriate and feasible, and can be seen as optional to the methodology paper (Apel et al., 2020). The workshop was audio recorded to facilitate the reporting of the workshop and for subsequent research activities. The audio files and transcripts are stored safely on a secured server and are only distributed among the organisers of the workshop. In the first instance, a draft report of the workshop has been produced. Participants were given the opportunity to give feedback on this draft report. A final report has then been produced as part of a deliverable for HBM4EU that will be made public on the website after approval of the Management Board and the European Commission.
