CLAIRE The Hague Headquarters opening

On 9 December, our administrative headquarters in The Hague (NL) have been officially opened. The Hague, which has a global reputation as “City of Peace and Justice” is an excellent fit for CLAIRE. The opening was attended by more then 100 guests; it featured speeches by representatives of CLAIRE, EurAI, the municipality of The Hague, the Parliament of the Netherlands, the Dutch AI Coalition, Leiden University, Delft University, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), as well as several demos of advanced AI systems.

Holger Hoos (Leiden University, NL): On the occasion, CLAIRE reaffirmed its commitment to AI for social good (in particular, to AI research an innovation towards the UN sustainable development goals) and AI for all.

Holger Hoos (Leiden University, NL): We also announced the creation of IAG Industry, as a first step towards creating the CLAIRE industry network, and revealed our international advisory board, which brings world-class experience in AI from academia and industry, as well as experience in building and running large-scale organisations, such as CERN, and creating large-scale funding schemes, such as H2020 and ERC grants, to CLAIRE.

Holger Hoos (Leiden University, NL): In the coming months, we will open additional administrative offices in Brussels (BE), Zürich (CH), Cork (IE) and Paris (FR), in addition to our existing offices in Prague (CZ), Saarbrücken (DE), Rome (IT), Oslo (NO), and our new HQ in The Hague (NL).
