It is anticipated that development of life science would affect a country to change
its growth by changing the nation’s safety and the environment or would bring some
ways to help the country react with the changes. Also it would work essentially to
increase national competitiveness of future growth industries such as health and medical
care, pharmaceuticals, chemistry, energy and more. Thus, this research aims to
discover some policy agendas for South Korea to be one of the top leading countries
in the field of life science in future and to suggest counterstrategies based on the
change of circumstances.
So in the result, it offers which directions of an investment in research and development
and regulatory policies have to go as we analyze objective indices and trends
of changes in related fields in the future. In addition it suggests policy alternatives
with analysis about how interested parties have tied up with each other.
What we have done for this research are that we estimated change motives and
effects based on indices which related to patents, research and development indices,
properties of industries, regulatory policies, and environment. With results of estimation,
we tried to discover conditions and connections that influence to policies.
In this study we forecasted how external factors such as population, income, energy,
climate change, globalization, progress of technology, and more and we found
which direction the life science heads to. Furthermore, we comprised present of
South Korea’s investment and generic technology on Research and development in life science to foreign countries. Through the results from comparison, we proposed
two strategies; one is steps for switching original technology current system related
to life science to be generic-centered and the other is a strategy about research institutes’
building global networks to cooperate with the ones in other countries.
More specifically we divided life science’s development strategies into four areas
which are environment, agricultural and fishery-groceries, and health care.
First, we suggested counter-strategies about expansion of bio plastic market’s base
and preservation of biological diversity in environment field. Next for the agricultural
and fishery-groceries we found urgent problems in South Korea and other countries
as well. In addition, we especially set a strategy to improve the quality of the nation’s
life and to secure growth engines for agricultural industry. Finally, for health
care area, we forecasted how social environments would change including the change
of the population and suggested government to investment on research and investment
and a political correspondence strategy to realize order-made medicine market.
In conclusion, this research desires to find problems that life science is facing by
analysis current and future applied life science and offer short and long term strategies
with a plan to raise South Korea’s competitiveness in the world. Furthermore,
we suggest a direction to draw an effective research and development’s result and
lead advancement of life science technology. Therefore it wants to be used to seek
ways to vitalize present public research and development system and increase the effectiveness
and efficiency when government constructs policy infrastructure of life
science such as reforming incentive system of researchers, regulatory policies, and
