Comparison Analysis of Science and Technology Council between Korea, USA, and Japan
As Korea government has expanded the budget for the
national research and development business, the need for the
installation of institute taking a role of deliberation, coordination, and
operation of research development business and its budget has been
increased continuously. In response to the demands of the times,
recently, the National Science & Technology Council (NSTC) was
installed. However, to achieve a creative economy more efficiently,
the fundamental introspection on the current state of the national
administration system of science and technology in Korea should be
needed. Accordingly, this study, firstly, analyzes the function and
organizational structure of NSTC in Korea. Then, this study
investigates the current state of the National Science and Technology
Council in main world countries. Lastly, this study derives some
implications based on the comparison analysis of the current state of
the National Science and Technology Council between Korea and
these countries. The present study will help in finding the way for the
advancement of the NSTC in Korea.
