 Abstract
Government-funded research institutes (GRIs) have played a pivotal role in national R&D in Korea. To achieve desired goals of GRIs with the limited R&D budget, their performance along with time needs to be measured and compared so that appropriate R&D policies can be formulated and implemented. This study measures the dynamic performance of GRIs from the efficiency perspective using the window model of data envelopment analysis (DEA). DEA is a non-parametric approach to measuring the relative efficiency of decision-making units (DMUs) with multiple inputs and outputs, and the DEA window model can capture the dynamic changes in efficiency of DMUs during multiple periods. The relative efficiency of GRIs is measured from the two perspectives: R&D and R&BD. Patents, papers, technology transfers are selected as outputs for R&D while compensated technology transfers and technology royalty are employed as outputs for R&BD. This study measures and compares the two types of performance of 20 Korean GRIs under the control of National Research Council of Science and Technology during the period of six years from 2008 to 2013. The results are expected to provide fruitful implications for national R&D policy making.
