As a value-added factor moves from ‘labor and capital’ to ‘knowledge and technology’, building ecology of a creative economy becomes a crucial factor in enhancing a nation’s competitiveness. Further, the importance of university-industry cooperation is constantly increasing for the realization of a creative economy.
