This study seeks to assess current Korea’s national R&D mechanism, one of the fundamental elements deemed necessary for successful delivery of the creative economy: Park administration’s key agenda. New direction for innovation is explored, too.
As an introduction to the entire study, Chapter 1, assesses Korea’s national R&D mechanism and presents future directions for innovation. Korea’s R&D expenditure is among the largest in the OECD, and its private sector boasts impressive R&D achievements, including patents, in a fairly short time. However, such development has created unintended side effects: ① R&D input imbalance between university and government; ② Lack of concrete results from theses as an R&D output; and ③ Small number of success in technology transfer and commercialization as an R&D output. Based on this diagnosis, Chapter 1 recommends five key agendas for innovation in Korea’s public R&D mechanism: ① increased autonomy; ② broader openness; ③ invigoration of high-risk and high-value studies; ④ demand- oriented innovation; and ⑤ formulation of global talent-based network.
