Recently, highly skilled migrants from some developing countries have made vital
contributions to the industrial development and economic growth of their homelands.
They have built knowledge networks between their home countries and their new
countries of residence, which have been increasingly significant in recent
knowledge-based economies. Thus, a “brain circulation” model that takes advantage
of human resources abroad to build global knowledge networks has been given
attention by most developing countries as a new strategy.
Since the 1980s, global knowledge networks have become significant in biotech and
pharmaceutical industries, resulting in the development of global division of labor.
Large pharmaceutical companies in advanced countries faced problems with R&D
productivity and they looked externally for sources of innovation. This process has
brought bio venture companies and CROs to supply promising drug candidates. It is
noteworthy that increasing numbers of bio venture companies and CROs in developing
countries have become partners with global pharmaceutical companies as their level
of science and technology has risen.
The purpose of this research is to examine the potentials and limits of global
knowledge networks in Korean biotech and pharmaceutical industries and to suggest
the policy measures to establish global knowledge networks through brain circulation.
