Piirus Pioneers

Who are the Piirus Pioneers?

The Pioneers are the epitome of Piirus values and culture. Numbering 74 people, across 34 different countries in 6 continents they demonstrate the ability of Piirus to create connections and cross boundaries. They span different disciplines from Architecture to Applied Mathematics, Molecular Medicine to Marketing, Public Policy to Psychology.

Piirus is run by a small and dedicated team in the UK and so Piirus Pioneers are a vital part of the Piirus community, as ambassadors of the Piirus brand and purveyors of the Piirus message across the world. They are dedicated researchers, beloved professors, and social influencers.
