The purpose of this study is to find out the policy implications regarding the EU FP and EUREKA which consist of the main parts in the midst of the international technological cooperation with EU region that our government is implementing. This study consists of five chapters in all. The present situations of the international technological cooperation in EU region were investigated in chapter two. Successively, the theoretical background regarding the policy implications for the international technological cooperation in EU region was provided in chapter three. As the theories establishing the bases at this point, there are network and transaction cost theory. The research methods were provided in chapter four, and through the policy case study of our government's international technological cooperation in EU region, the theoretical establishment developed in chapter three was carried out in chapter five. Subsequently, conclusions and suggestions were drawn in chapter six.
