In this study, we analyzed causal relationships between technology orientation and technological performance, between technological performance and commercialization speed on the government -funded R&D projects in 2009 for searching the cause of the big gap between technological success rate and commercialization success rate. In the result, technology orientation affected negatively on the technological performance, but the technological performance affected positively on the commercialization speed. These results mean that low technology oriented projects are easy to reach the selling step of products faster but they are not easy to attain a balanced income and outgo in contrast to the firms' own R&D. we found it was caused by a defect in the government's R&D support and management system.
