In this study, the technical level and competence of Chungbuk region manufactures were diagnosed and implications for efficiency improvement of cooperation with local universities were derived. The results are as follow. First, in Chungbuk area, 75% of the skilled workers are medium-skilled and high skilled workers. And the life cycle of production products was found to have entered middle/old age. In addition, the industries were overestimating its technology capabilities, including marketing and sales technology, and management technology. Therefore, local universities should develop differentiated program such as technology transfer and commercialization support so that companies can nurture new industries and it is necessary to improve understanding of reality and future prediction ability through various education and seminars. Second, universities in Chungbuk province have failed to meet the practical demands of industry by providing general educational programs such as lifelong education curriculum, rather than the practical training required by industry. First of all, industries needed the practical training programs such as human resource empowerment, technical education and workers' retraining for local industry development. In addition, industries were expected to provide relevant knowledge and infrastructure such as testing, analysis, participation in technology development such as commissioning and joint research. Therefore, universities should prepare customized Industry-Academia Cooperation Programs through industry demand survey in planning. Also, it is necessary to establish various connection points with industry to ensure that industry-academia cooperation will continue and achieve results. Third, the technology of the industries in Chungbuk province was found to be very unrelated to the next generation regional strategic industries. This is not shared vision between industry and local government, Industry-Academia Cooperation Programs will serve as a platform to organize various community entities. Universities will be able to play a key role in between industries and local governments.

본 연구에서는 충북지역 제조업체의 기술 수준과 역량을 진단하여 지역 대학과의 산학협력 효율화에 대한 시사점을 도출하였고 그 결과는 다음과 같다. 첫째 충북지역 산업체들은 중숙련, 고숙련 기업이 75%이며 생산제품의 수명주기는 중 장년기에 접어들은 것으로 조사되었다. 또한 산업체는 마케팅판매기술과 경영 및 관리기술 등의 역량을 과도하게 평가하고 있었다. 따라서 지역 대학들은 산업체의 신산업 육성을 위해 기술이전 및 사업화를 지원하고, 교육과 세미나를 통해 현실 이해와 미래예측 능력을 증진시켜야 할 것이다. 둘째, 충북지역 대학들은 평생교육과정과 같은 일반 교육 프로그램을 우선 제공하여 산업체의 실제적 요구에 부응하지 못했다. 산업체들은 필요인력 배출과 기술교육 등 실무 교육 프로그램을 필요로 했으며, 이외에도 시험, 분석 등의 지식과 인프라 제공, 공동연구 등 기술개발 참여를 기대하고 있었다. 따라서 대학은 수요조사를 통해 맞춤형 협력 프로그램을 준비하고 산업체와 다양한 연결점을 마련해야 할 것이다. 셋째, 충북지역 산업체들의 보유기술은 지역전략산업과 관련성이 매우 낮은 것으로 조사되었다. 이는 산업체와 지자체 간 비전이 공유되지 않은 것으로 대학은 다양한 지역사회 주체들을 조직화할 수 있는 플랫폼 역할을 수행해야 할 것이다.
