The mission of INPACE is to actively support the implementation of the Digital Partnerships with Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Singapore, and the cooperation with India in the context of the Trade and Technology Council, by creating a sustainable and interactive multi-stakeholder Indo-Pacific European Hub. The INPACE Hub is organised in 3 pillars: Policy (Activity Cluster 1 - Digital Dialogues, Policy and Education), rolling out digital technologies (Activity Cluster 2 - Innovation and Entrepreneurship for Sustainable Well-being), and pushing key technologies forward (Clusters 3 - Trustworthy Decision Support, 4 - Chips of the Future and 5 - Future Networks). The Hub will create a INPACE Community Platform to support the implementation of Digital Partnerships in the Indo-Pacific. A key element of INPACE is to organise thematically focused discussions on the expert level in 17 areas of strategic interest in Thematic Working Groups. This will lead to detailed and strategic outputs based on analytical work and deep domain knowledge. 28 events, both thematic and integrated, will provide networking opportunities. INPACE combines three levels of interventions, feeding each other: the expert level, the government level, the broader community of stakeholders. INPACE integrates co-creation, stakeholder engagement, community building. Particular attention is given to the impact and implications of digital technologies from the social and humanistic point of view. Regular communications with the EC and policy makers will ensure compatibility with ongoing efforts and priorities. It will also be assured, through the Asian partners, that the counterparts in the partner countries are informed and supportive of the activities. INPACE will from the start embed sustainability in the project execution, aiming at the hub becoming a sustainable long-term expert-driven mechanism for EU-Indo-Pacific collaboration in Digital Technologies and possibly beyond.
