This article is a study about international scientific collaboration,
specifically as it relates to the biotechnology sector in Korea. The
Korean biotechnology sector is compared to other major centres for
biotechnology in the world, and we give recommendations to improve it.
The importance of international collaboration is stressed. This
article lists the different types of international collaboration, and
the current trends in the international scientific community. Then the
focus is narrowed specifically to the biotechnology sector, where
collaboration is examined in greater detail. Trends in the United
States and the European Union are examined to give a greater context
to the discussion. Within this comprehensive frame of reference,
Korean biotechnology achievements are discussed, problems observed in
Korean biotechnology are listed and possible solutions to these
problems are given.
