Abstract

Over the past 40 years, Korea has shown a remarkable economic growth with drastic changes of its National Innovation System (NIS). In order to find out how the Korea’s NIS has changed according to its industrial development, Korea’s National Innovation System is evaluated by analyzing R&D investment, manpower, technological achievement and the individual innovation actors. In addition, the S&T policies of Korea are reviewed. It is argued that the changes in KNIS are in fact evolutionary responses and the outcome of Korean government’s S&T policies. In the early stage of Korea’s development, Korea’s Government Research Institutes (KGRIs) led the development of Korea’s science and technologies, but gradually the private companies began to take the leading role in the development. Recently, as the economy grew and industries were developed, the lack of basic technology became the weak point of Korea’s NIS. (The rest omitted)
