PIIRUS – Connecting Researchers, Crossing Boundaries


Piirus is an online researcher profiling and collaboration social media application, offered by the University of Warwick, that you can freely register with using your rgu.ac.uk email address. By completing your profile with your research interest and indicating the types of collaboration you are seeking, such as formal collaboration around grants, bids or proposals, industry, international opportunities, experimental work and data, public engagement, mentoring or support, you will quickly and easily discover likeminded researchers seeking similar engagement.

The site contains other content of interest including a blog – among recent posts for example, we draw attention to a piece by Scott Reeves, Professor in Interprofessional Research at Kingston & St George’s, University of London, about the research landscape within interprofessional education.

Funding award: Success for HAIVAIRN

Dr Colin Macduff, in collaboration with Glasgow School of Art, has recently been awarded an AHRC grant for a new Healthcare Associated Infection Visualisation and Ideation Research Network (HAIVAIRN).

Building from two previous AHRC funded research and knowledge transfer grants, the new network will bring together multidisciplinary national and international expertise to explore how new ways of visualising and thinking can help address this pressing global issue.

The inaugural event is scheduled for September in RGU where the network group will enjoy traditional Scottish hospitality to enable their collective HAIVAIRN.  More information
