The EHEA has been launched in 2010 with the wider goal of ensuring more comparable, compatible and coherent systems of higher education in Europe. This initiative, deemed by many observers as one of the most successful regional cooperation process in the field of higher education policies, relies on soft-coordination mechanisms grounded on the principle of evidence-based policy making (Deca, 2013). The present article aims at illustrating the way in which European level policy decisions have so far been grounded on evidence, while making the case for potential additional tools that could contribute to achieving the EHEA goals: data analytics, semantic analysis and ‘big data’ approaches.

Traditionally, a country’s electoral system requires the voter to vote at a specific day and place, which conflicts with the mobility usually seen in modern live styles. Thus, the widespread of Internet (mobile) broadband access can be seen as an opportunity to deal with this mobility problem, i.e. the adoption of an Internet voting system can make the live of voter’s much more convenient; however, a widespread Internet voting systems adoption relies on the ability to develop trustworthy systems, i.e. systems that are verifiable and preserve the voter’s privacy. Building such a system is still an open research problem. Our contribution is a new Internet voting system: EVIV, a highly sound End-to-end Verifiable Internet Voting system, which offers full voter’s mobility and preserves the voter’s privacy from the vote casting PC even if the voter votes from a public PC, such as a PC at a cybercafe´ or at a public library. Additionally, EVIV has private vote verificationmechanisms, in which the voter just has to perform a simple match of two small strings (4-5 alphanumeric characters), that detect and protect against vote manipulations both at the insecure vote client platform and at the election server side.

Studies have been showing a negative impact of pandemic control measures on mental health. However, few studies assessed these effects longitudinally during the peak of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The goals of this study were to explore whether differential effects of COVID-19 restrictions on mental health could be observed by sex and age in a Luxembourgish nationally representative sample during the initial outbreak of COVID-19. Furthermore, we aimed to assess whether there are differences in risk and protective factors longitudinally at two assessment times. A total of 1,756 respondents aged 18 years and older (50.74% women) reported sociodemographic and socio-economic characteristics, depression, anxiety, stress, and loneliness. Women and younger respondents reported higher rates of severe depression and anxiety symptoms, suggesting higher vulnerability to the pandemic control measures. This study contributes to the investigation of mental health consequences of the pandemic and the pandemic control measures, particularly related to shifts in care task responsibilities, gender and socio-economic inequalities, as well as younger groups' uncertainty about the future.

Between the 2001 and the 2011 censuses, the part of the persons in employment in the total population decreased slightly from 43.9 % to 43.2 %. For men this recoil was more important. The percentage of the men in employment passed from 52.2 % to 48.3 % of the total of the male population. The part of the women in employment on the other hand, increased from 35.7 % of the female population in 2001 to 38.2 % in 2011. However, in all the age groups, the men remain more numerous to be in employment than the women. The age of the beginning of the professional life increased, but the active life is also longer and this especially for women. The foreigners are relatively more numerous to be in employment (48.5 % of the foreign population) than the Luxembourgers (39.5 % of the Luxembourgish population). In medium age groups, the employment rates of the Luxembourgers are however higher than those of the foreigners. On the other hand, the foreigners are proportionally more numerous to be in employment at more advanced ages than the Luxembourgers. [less ▲]

Depuis le recensement de 2001, la population a augmenté de 72 814 unités pour atteindre, au 1er février 2011, le nombre de 512 353 habitants, ce qui correspond à une croissance annuelle moyenne de 1.5%. L’âge moyen de la population est de 38.7 ans, c’est-à-dire 1.2 an de plus qu’en 2001. Pour re-présenter l’importance relative des différents groupes d’âge, on peut calculer le rapport de dé-pendance des jeunes et le rapport de dépendance des personnes âgées. Le rapport de dépendance des jeunes indique le nombre d’enfants et de jeu-nes entre 0 et 14 ans pour 100 personnes âgées de 15 à 64 ans. Ce rapport a diminué en passant de 28.2% en 2001 à 25.2% en 2011. Le rapport de dé-pendance des personnes âgées indique le nombre de personnes de 65 ans et plus rapporté à 100 per-sonnes ayant entre 15 et 64 ans. Ce rapport a bais-sé légèrement de 20.7% en 2001 à 20.4% en 2011. Toutefois, en termes de structure par âge, il y a des différences régionales et locales assez importantes. Ainsi, l’âge moyen varie de 34.2 à 42.9 ans selon les communes. [less ▲]

À partir de données collectées dans des publications d’acteurs du réseau Transpac, d’archives et de périodiques dédiés aux télécommunications, telle la Revue Française des Télécommunications, nous avons donc choisi d’interroger une courbe concernant le nombre d’accès directs commerciaux à Transpac, afin d’évaluer le succès de ce réseau.

OBJECTIVES: The aims of the study were to estimate the prevalence of diabetes in Luxembourg in 2002, to compare it to the prevalence reported in 1991 and to evaluate if prescription attitudes have changed since 1991. METHODS: The prevalence of diabetes was estimated using the drug sales data. The key parameters, total amount of antidiabetic drugs sold in one year and the average daily dose or Prescribed Daily Dose (PDD), have been obtained from the National Social Security Organization and by a standardized questionnaire sent to all general practitioners and all internists and endocrinologists of the country. RESULTS: The PDD was calculated on 2,402 questionnaires on individual diabetic patients. By this mean, the proportion of patients only treated with appropriate diet could also be obtained. Compared to 1991, the total amount of antidiabetic drugs showed a four-fold increase in biguanides tablet prescriptions. A high percentage of combined treatments was found. The prevalence of diabetes in Luxembourg was found to be 3.05% of the total population. CONCLUSIONS: Compared to the status in 1991, prevalence of diabetes increased by 63%, which seems mainly due to type 2 diabetic patients as orally-treated diabetic patients almost doubled (2.11% vs 1.16%). A substantial change in prescriptions for diabetes has occurred, suggesting a positive influence of studies like the United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS). [less ▲]
