Innovation Strategies for the Future of Jeju in Pursuit of Smart Growth

Jeju’s Smart Island strategies integrate conventional industries with digital technologies to preserve nature while at the same time transforming the island’s economic, social, and ecological structures in line with the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The strategies are aimed at resolving urban issues through the analysis of big data, improving the quality of life of residents through data-based automation and streamlining, and pursuing sustainable changes and innovation. They are also aimed at commercializing drone-based administrative services and easing regulations in fields requiring innovation, thereby finding shortcuts to a future city. The Smart Island strategies promote the “Civic Hacking” and “Living Lab” movements based on massive amounts of data, and drive active participation and interaction of civil society to achieve an innovative digital society and deliberative democracy. In addition, the physical isolation and reduced radio wave interference of the island, as well as its unique strength as the country’s largest tourist destination attracting 15 million visitors every year, will help the Smart Island policy bear the fruit of innovation.
