Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The Japanese and South Korean models of high-technology complexes are compared. This will provide a better understanding of their roles in technology development. The Japanese government has oriented its policies toward innovation linked to regional development since the 1960s with the planning of Tsukuba Science City located to the Northeast of Tokyo. In South Korea, the need for regional decentralization appeared in the early 1970s with the proposition of a new science town called Taedok Science Town by President Park. At the beginning of 1980s, the Technopolis Plan was proposed as a new concept of regional development policy in Japan. Ten years later, South Korea also entered the course of technopole-development. - (MT)
