Abstract
The aim of this paper is to address the factors that influence R&D performance of the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), the representative government-supported research institute in Korea, through an empirical case study. Using the KIST R&D project data from 2004 to 2008, we investigate the determinants of R&D performance through a logistic regression analysis, and compare the results with the survey data we collected from researchers. Our results indicate that total budget, high rate of temporary researchers, and the outcome of the research director's past publications affect publishing performance, while the size of equipment, materials expenditure, and whether the research is outsourced or not affect patent registration performance and technology transfer performance. Contrary to expectations, major factors of publishing performance and that of patent performance are different respectively, and even the results of the survey data we collected from researchers show the difference. Accordingly, the findings of our study suggest the need for research institutes to consider facilitating communication with researchers and enhancing research policy analysis for improving R&D performance.
