The establishment of function and role in government-funded research institute becomes a vital issue as fierce international technology-competition and enhanced industrial convergence makes science and technology important and influential more and in socio-economic level. This paper defines independent and dependent variables to identify factors which influence on research performance. As the independent variables, research funds, research personnel and research support staff are chosen. Dependent variables which are selected as proxy variables of research performance are royalties, papers and patents. Values from regression analysis were drawn by time-series analysis and cross-section analysis. As a result, the significance of correlation coefficients is sequential, research personnel, research support staff and research funds respectively. This finding is expected to give implication of future direction on government-funded research institute development.
