Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique window of opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea had transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before. What makes Korea’s experience unique is that its rapid economic development was relatively broad-based, meaning that the fruits of Korea’s rapid growth were shared by many. The challenge of course is unlocking the secrets behind Korea’s rapid and broad-based development, which can offer invaluable insights, lessons and knowledge that can be shared with the rest of the international community. Recognizing this, the Korean Ministry of Strategy an

Abstract

This report studies a series of ICT R&D policies in Korea since the 1960s. Korea’s systemic ICT research and development infrastructure establishment and continued R&D policy implementation have deeply contributed to the country’s present stance as a global ICT powerhouse. The Korean government has successfully established and implemented policies for research institutions, universities and enterprises to build up their capacities to lead innovations on the front lines of ICT sector development. The country has effectively developed technologies such as TDX, DRAM, CDMA, WiBro and DMB; showed an exemplary case of dividing roles among industry, academia and research institutions in developing new ICT technologies; raised funds for information communication promotion to build one of the top-notch ICT networks in the world and performed stable government ICT R&D projects. Such series of achievements by the country are recognized as a benchmark case, not just for developing countries but also for advanced countries. Developing countries, in particular, as they tend to have weak ICT technological capabilities in the private sector, can study Korea’s case as a benchmark where the basic technology development infrastructure was laid first by many government-sponsored research institutes followed by the nurturing of private sector capacity in a phased manner (Ko et al., 2012).
