Abstract

Technology supply has been the main thrust of the Korean government’s science & technology policy, focus¬ing on the development and acquisition of new technology in line with the catching-up strategy of economic growth and industrial development. However, new social or societal problems have become major govern¬ment policy issues, heralding new innovation policy aimed to address them. Such new policy initiatives for social problem-solving present a niche where the existing system of government innovation policy process is challenged, including such processes as goal-setting, planning, implementation, project management, and evaluation. The rigidity of the existing institution of government innovation policy, however, still shapes the content and progression of innovation policy for social problem-solving. This study reviews Korean innova¬tion policy for social problem-solving as a policy niche, and aims to clarify its challenges and opportunities. (The rest omitted)
