The purpose of this research is to draw scientific and technological needs to
achieve the future vision of our society through solving the future issues. To get
the needs we have to investigate detailed issues raised by each megatrend which
will represent a big tide of our social change. We draw 8 megatrends and related
88 key issues which give important impacts on our future social change
We usually use meta analysis, delphi analysis and brainstorming to find future
issues and scientific and technological needs. We draw issues from the point of
both the impacts on Korean society and scientific and technological
interrelationship of view.
We surveyed 1,000 peoples who are selected by the proportion of gender, ages
and geographics to find their future vision related to science and technology. The
most important value of Korean people concerning in their lives reveals health.
Most of Korean peoples agree that science and technology has been contributed
to both the development of economy and improvement of quality of life. Korean
people believe that science and technology can realize our life more convenient
and health in the future. The priority of science and technology fields to invest
in the future is energy, biomedical and so on.
The peak of each issue to reveal in the future is various. The peak of issues
related to Chinese development are in year of 2030 meanwhile issues related to
energy and resources and climate and environment arek in year of 2040.
We have 32 issues which are more influential to Korea and higher corelation
of science and technology. Majority of those issues are related to the megatrend of Chinese development and energy and resources problem.
We also recommend 5 key directions of future technology(smart, ubiquitous,
green, safe, customized) to draw technologies as national strategy. In conclusion,
we suggest we have to take both problem solving approach and interdisciplinary
approach to find a future strategic technology to contribute future vision through
