Daedeok Innopolis as a shining symbol of science and technology, the symbol and heart of South Korea's research activities, has now become a global center of innovation. Through research institutes and universities, it has very suitable facilities for technology commercialization in specialized industrial sectors such as information and communication technology. Based on this, the aim of the current research is development explanation and evolution model of the spatial structure of Daedeok Innopolis. Its achievements and experiences should be used for the development of knowledge base in the country. The research method is descriptive-analytical and developmental. The content analysis method was used to analyze the data.
The results show that Daedeok Innopolis has been divided into five regions (with an area of 70.27 km) to realize its operational goals. These five regions consist of area 1 as the Daedeok research complex; area 2, integrated site of investment companies with advanced technology; area 3 , place of concentration of industrial complexes; area 4 , the international scientific trade belt and future development site, and finally area 5 , national defense industry development zone. About 11% of all PhD-level researchers in Korea are employed at Daedeok Innopolis. Currently, 22,000 researchers and staff are conducting research in advanced fields, and 10% of Korea's research workforce is at Daedeok Innopolis. 30 state-funded institutions, six universities, more than 400 corporate research and development centers and more than 1,200 high-tech companies are located on this site. Risk-taking businesses make up more than 94% of all companies. The stages of spatial expansion of Daedeok Innopolis consist of the establishment of Daedeok Scientific Town (1973-1993), the creation of innovation (1997-1993), the formation of innovation cluster (1998-2003) and the growth stage of innovation cluster (2004 to now). In general, the development and evolution model of Daedeok Innopolis includes the initial stage (scientific park model); the development stage (technopolis model) and the maturity stage (innovation cluster model).
