With the change of times, regional competitiveness became leading factor of national competitiveness and thus many countries recognize regional innovation as a core strategy for national development. Korea has also perceived the importance of regional development and increased investment in regional R&D to keep pace with this movement. However, it is indicated as a problem that Korean government has been executed regional R&D budget exclusively without reflecting region’s substantive needs or characters. To strengthen the regional competitiveness through innovative policy, R&D policy needs to be managed by the region so they can arrange the projects in an accordance with their demands and circumstance.
This study proposes some policy issues to boost regional R&D by the government of region within the framework of regionalization and regional technology innovation. In order to support them, it studies theoretical bases on promoting of regional R&D policy, a status of Korean regionalization based on R&D, problems of regional R&D policy and improvement plans.

Second, it confirms the level of regionalization on regional R&D policy of Korea by conducting a survey.
Third, it diagnoses the status and problems of regional R&D policy.
Fourth, it suggests critical political tasks what we should do for future regional R&D.
Finally, there still remains confusion over R&D statistics due to the absence of conceptual definition on regional R&D. It proposes distinct concept of R&D and classification system to resolve this uncertainty.
