International Journal of Risk Assessment and Management (IJRAM), Vol. 22, No. 1, 2019

Abstract: This study examined how the role of research and development (R&D) can be improved in the field of disaster management in Korea by comparing self-assertion and multi-fusion approaches. Literature review was the major methodology utilised. Using five variables, namely public institutions, the industry or the business sector, college laboratories, mass media, and international R&D, the two approaches were analysed, and in the process, the pentagon model was established. The study's key position is that Korea has to transform its current self-assertion approach to a multi-fusion approach in the near future by understanding and improving its R&D culture, and thus, integrate expert knowledge into the R&D system.
