Rising Researchers Network

Who we are

The CLAIRE | Rising Researchers Network aims to gather graduate students, especially Ph.D. students, postdocs, and master students, involved in AI research, who believe in European excellence in AI and that ethical and human-centered AI should be the norm of AI research and development in the future.

About us

Our mission

Influence the direction of future AI research in Europe

Our activities


With our partnership cluster group, we are looking for institutions, companies or event organisers open for collaborations with the Rising Researchers Network. We thereby aim to support our members in their career and open up new opportunities through these partnerships. A recent success: Together with the Game AI summer school, we were able to offer 5 scholarships for a summer school participation for free!

Join our network and we will provide you with the details how to apply for it!


We have an active community on our Slack channel to support the networking of members. We organise regular meetups for members to get to know each other. Also, we set up pub quizzes, lightning talk sessions, journal clubs or Kaggle competitions tailored to our members’ interests.
