ABSTRACT

This research aims to understand the relationship change between the ministry and the government supported research institutes(GSRIs) in the national R&D programme. For this purpose, the research used the principal-agent theory as one possible theoretical framework. Several theoretical propositions were drawn from the theory and applied to the description of the relationship change in the case of the national ICT programme. The research result showed the reason why the ministry has continuously strengthened the governance structure and R&D management to the R&D actors. However, in the ICT programme where the actors were interdependent on each other for survival and growth, they did not make a new relationship with other actors. This implied the policy network approach could be also useful for understanding the actor's relationship in some national R&D programmes. This research also mentioned the transaction cost burden to the R&D related actors because of the mistrust based management has been increased sharply in recent years. In relation to this, this research suggested that the introduction of network management which delegates the R&D management power to the research community should be seriously considered.
