Launching Piirus: The biggest globally-connected University screen event

Piirus was launched by Warwick to help researchers make connections and contacts, both within institutions and beyond.

What can Piirus do?

Piirus can help:

  • make contacts for your research and your career, both within your institution and beyond
  • find expertise on a specific topic or technique
  • make interdisciplinary connections to refresh your work and widen funding opportunities
  • improve the visibility of your research outside your institution

The official launch is being planned for June this year.To help us plan the event, we’re looking for ideas from the student and staff community as well as any additional support you could provide.


Get involved...

We're creating an interactive game for big screens to get multiple locations and communities involved. This is your chance to get involved in the biggest globally-connected University event in the world. Join this brainstorming and taster session on 20 March, 1pm-4pm, to find out more and shape the game!
