This study investigates the differences of recognition about geo-technologies outcome between experts and nonexperts. Based on these findings, this study would offer suggestions for future communication strategies on research outcome in a various field of scientific research as well as KIGAM. The result shows that there are differences between expert and nonexpert in the level of recognition about geoscience research outcome. The findings of this study emphasize the needs for recognizing the concept that geo-technologies are directly related to people's lives and external communication is necessary.

본 연구는 지질자원기술의 연구성과에 대한 인식을 전문가와 비전문가로 구분해 살펴보았다. 이러한 조사를 바탕으로 한국지질자원연구원의 연구성과 뿐만 아니라 국가 발전에 이바지하는 다양한 과학 연구 분야의 연구성과에 관한 향후 커뮤니케이션 전략에 관한 제언을 제공하고자 했다. 전체적으로, 지질자원기술의 연구성과에 있어 인식 수준의 차이가 전문가 집단과 비전문가 집단 사이에 나타나고 있음을 발견했다. 지질자원기술은 국민 생활에 직결되는 문제임을 인식시키고 적극적인 대외 커뮤니케이션이 필요하다고 할 수 있다.
