Abstract

Coming to ageing society, demand on QoL of the elderly is increasing and
varying. Baby boom generation, about 16.4% out of total population in Korea
in 2007, will play a role as core customers as well as main social members in
close future. Nevertheless, economic, cultural, and institutional infrastructures to
satisfy new and dynamic demands are established in our society. This
research figures out political ways to improve QoL of the elderly through
exploration of S&T application and the problems.
Theoretical approach of this research is divided into two-fold directions: ①
one is to resolve imbalance between supply and demand of gerontechnology;
and ② the other is define to role of S&T policy for the elderly' QoL. We
deal with a series of supply chain including R&D, production, and
distribution/service of gerontechnology. We attempt literature review, national
R&D analysis, expert workshop, and case study about linkages between
subordinate concepts of the supply chain.
Resulting from status analysis, Korean supply chain of gerontechnology
has some weak points in each interaction between R&D and demand,
between R&D and industry, between industry and demand, and between
production and service / between service and R&D: ① R&D-demand: there
is a bottleneck in interface between technologies and the elderly; ②
R&D-industry: R&D of companies is not systematic and production relies
mainly upon import of components; ③ industry-demand: it is hard to get information on trend of demand, industry, and technology; and ④
production-service/service-R&D: information on demand are not delivered
actively into production and R&D.
In this research, political suggestion to improve the elderly' QoL focuses
upon demand feedback into R&D, production, and distribution/service,
dividing into four approaches: ① enforcing ability to grasp demand; ②
expanding research capacity for the elderly; ③ fostering senior industry; and
④ educating experts.
