  • KAs information and knowledge are increasingly becoming more important in the knowledge-driven society, knowledge management, as a very important management paradigm, is securing firm position in private and public sectors. Complying with this paradigm, government-funded research institutes in science-technology sector are actively utilizing knowledge management by employing knowledge management system and evaluating its applications' performance. The purpose of this study is to develop evaluation items and measurement indices to rationally measure knowledge management performance of the government-funded research institutes and to verify the feasibility of applying these evaluation items and indices. To achieve this research goal, the evaluation model of knowledge management performance was constructed by reviewing and integrating the existing studies, and subsequently, evaluation areas, evaluation items, measurement indices were derived from this evaluation model. Also, the feasibility analysis on the evaluation items and measurement indices was performed by means of FGI(Focus Group Interview) with the knowledge management experts belonging to Korean government-funded institutions in science-technology sector. The implications of this study are as follows : in theoretical perspective, this study has proposed a criterion frame to evaluate knowledge management performance, and has rationally drawn evaluation items and measurement indices from the criterion frame. And in practical perspective, this study has improved the validity and practicality of the measurement indices, which can lead to more reasonable and easier evaluation of knowledge management performance of the government-funded research institutes.

  • The enormous budget of government and manpower are invested to the government funded institutes every year. The R&D investment focused on input has to be turned toward the investment based on the effectiveness of R&D activities. Measuring the efficiency of research activities is required in order to evaluate the effectiveness of R&D investment in these institutes. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the relative efficiency of research activities performed in 19 government funded research institutes. CCR/BCC model and DEA/AR model were applied to get the relative efficiency of 19 institutes. Assurance regions for the weight of output attributes were obtained by using the underlined concept of the analytic hierarchy process (AHP). We used input and output data items describing research activity of 19 government funded research institutes. The results of this study are expected to become a basis of the R&D investment decision of the government.

  • In order to analyze the organizational performance of government-funded research institutes, four independent variables (organization size, organization age, evaluation system, organization location) and goal ambiguity were empirically analyzed. Although there are existing studies on institutional evaluation, which is the organizational performance of government-funded research institutes, there are differences in research in that it is an empirical analysis analyzed from the perspective of goal ambiguity and that the evaluation system, which is the specificity of institutional evaluation, is included in the analysis. As a result of the analysis, organizational location was the only independent variable that had a direct significant effect on organizational performance, and goal ambiguity showed a significant mediating effect for all independent variables. This indicates that goal ambiguity plays an important role in the organizational performance of government-funded research institutes, and to reduce this, increase the size of the organization, pay attention to establishment of the organization for organizational age, and that it is desirable to have an independent research group in the government department for the organization location. In addition, it was supported that the improvement effect of the evaluation system is proceeding in a desirable direction in terms of goal ambiguity.

  • This study used a resource-based perspective to analyse the effects of organizational composition on the R&D performance of science and technology government-funded research institutes (GFRIs). We assumed that the composition of each GFRI would eventually be regarded as absorptive capacity and act as a moderating variable between R&D investment and performance. We used a panel generalized least squares (GLS) model with fixed effects to analyse panel data from 115 Korean GFRIs between 2011 and 2015. Our findings show that R&D investment of GFRIs has a direct and positive effect on performance. We also analysed how organizational composition can moderate the effect of R&D investment on performance. The findings provide evidence that organizational composition plays a moderating role between R&D investment and performance. Finally, this study discusses policy implications, its limitations, and also highlights future research directions.

  • Research records are a type of record with a range of controversies over the core elements of management, such as the definition and scope of research records, and who manages research records, despite the critical need for their management. Research records have been neglected in blind spots because it is difficult to manage them, but if well managed, they are evaluated as records with a highly potential value that can be used infinitely later. In particular, government-funded research institutes, as both research institutes and public institutions, take responsibility for systematic management of these research records. Therefore, as this study noted the necessity of research records appraisal for the systematic management of research records in government-funded research institutes, and conducted interviews with 11 records managers working at government-funded research institutes in Korea, the current status of research records management and appraisal of government-funded research institutes was identified. As a result, improvement measures for research records appraisal was suggested as follows. First of all, in the light of the current public records appraisal system, there is a problem of effectiveness in applying it to the research record appraisal system as it is. Therefore, this study suggested that an appraisal system appropriate for research records was needed, and proposed plans for improving the research records appraisal system in terms of purposes, authority, methods, time point, tools and criteria for appraisal.

  • Objectives We analyzed the trends of government-funded research on Kampo medicine in Japan to provide advanced evidence to R&D support policy for Korean medicine, and to introduce new research fields and trends to the researchers. Methods We reviewed the researches on Kampo medicine through 'research-er.jp' and 'KAKEN' database which contain R&D status in Japan and scientific research funding project issued by the Japan Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. Results Since 1976, government-funded research on Kampo medicine has been continuously announced, and now 533 tasks have been completed or are in progress. The average duration of the study is 2.54 years, but it has been prolonged to 3.52 years in recent years. 4~5 million yen was supported per project for laboratory research, and an average of 44,342 thousand yen was supported per project for specialized laboratory research and clinical research. Conclusions Despite the absence of systematically supporting departments, the researches on Kampo medicine in Japan were qualitatively superior since they focused on providing the scientific basis for clinical application. As competition in the world's traditional medicine market becomes more intense, it is necessary to improve the competitiveness of Korean medicine. Therefore, a keen interest in Korean medicine and active support from the government is needed.
