Abstract

The Korean Innovation System is at a new transition stage. The strategy to
catch up with developed countries by absorbing, assimilating and improving
advanced foreign technologies in the 1960s enabled Korea to achieve a
remarkable economic success. During this period, Korea performed technological
innovation activities just like a student who solves given questions with the help
of a standard answer sheet. However, during the 1990s, for some items like
semiconductor, TFT-LCD, mobile phone and others, Korea started to emerge in
the first place throughout the world. To become a frontier means that there no
longer exist examples to follow on. Therefore, Korea should now solve a set of
its own problems without references or find its own way to innovate
technologies without the help of developed countries. This change in
technological environment requires innovation players to transform themselves
from ‘fast followers’ to ‘innovation leaders’. Now, Korea is right in the middle
of a new transition from the catch-up stage to the post catch-up stage.
Though interests in the core features of post catch-up way of technological
innovation have increased significantly, still it is hard to find valid research on
post catch-up innovation regime. Therefore, the main objective of this research is
to provide a broad outline of post catch-up Korean Innovation System. Divided
into three fields, this research has collected and found new patterns of post
catch-up technological innovation as well as new ways of doing things and new
strategies and policies in each field.
