Government Innovation Policy (OECD Reviews of Innovation Policy: Korea 2009)

This chapter examines the innovation policies put in place by the Korean government to address the many issues discussed in previous chapters. It begins with a short history of developments in Korean innovation policy over the past 40 years and highlights the issues that dominate today's innovation policy agenda. The main policy-making institutions are then described, followed by an examination of the way policy is co-ordinated and governed. Funding programmes for research are discussed, as is Korean policy on human resources for science and technology, followed by consideration of more demand-side policies and policies aimed at improving the framework conditions for innovation. The final sections of the chapter take a spatial perspective by considering policy efforts for promoting the internationalisation and regionalisation of science and innovation.
