The Korean government has strengthened R&D policies as core policy measures for the country’s social and economic development. To support this scheme, the Korean government has actively expanded its R&D investments. However, the productivity increase driven by this volume growth has not been as high as it was originally expected. So, improving the efficiency of government R&D investments has now emerged as one of important national agenda.
To improve the efficiency of government R&D investments, the Korean government has pushed forward various policies and schemes to improve the use of government R&D budget. However, due to the overlapping programs between government ministries, this inefficiency issue has been continuously raised. In addition, fragmented or unconnected projects have caused the value generated from government R&D to drop.
To improve the efficiency of government R&D investments, the present study presents a comprehensive analysis and proposes some improvement ideas to help enhance the efficiency and adequacy of government R&D program structure.
So far, the government’s approach to designing the structure of government R&D programs has been geared toward improving the efficiency of program budget structure, without ever attempting a qualitative structural improvement. Instead of a comprehensive analysis of program structure, the efficiency in the process of allocating R&D budget has been the prime concern. For a comprehensive structural analysis of government R&D programs, this study adopts a differentiated approach considering different characteristics of government R&D programs at different levels, macro and micro levels. This means, at macro level, the importance is on the efficiency of budget allocation system while the qualitative adequacy of R&D project structure is considered an important factor at micro level.
