ARCTIC PACER, or 'Arctic Public Services Innovation Cluster' project, will create synergies among 30 partners from 20 regions and 7 countries to face the same challenge: better public services provision in Arctic territories. Factors such as low-density populations, long distances and other physical barriers, youth out-migration and shortage of human and material resources are putting the public service providers in high pressure to deliver quality and sustainable services. 

This project will cluster 5 international projects approved by Botnia Atlantica, Interreg Nord and Northern Periphery and Arctic Programmes to explore innovative solutions for participative user-centred, quality and sustainable digital public services in Arctic regions.
