This thesis addressed gaps between policy expectation and policy actions through investigating local agency interaction in the policy delivery system. This thesis particularly focused on regional innovation policies, specifically industry-academia collaboration (lAC) policies in South Korea, a politically centralised country in which an attempt to enhance the role and interaction of local agencies fi:om a perspective of a bottom-up approach was emerging. By utilising an analytical framework underpinned by agency-structure relations, implementation models anc the notion of demand-side coherence, this thesis attempted to gain a better understanding of the behavioural differences between diverse agencies in the policy implementation process and the influence of policy delivery systems on their actions.
