Recovering from science: how far can we push?
Expecting recovery from science and its applications is a newly growing field in different countries, and there have been debates on its efficacy as a policy option. Noting the salience, this paper attempted to discuss the issue of cost recovery in the area of meteorological research. After a theoretical review, this research focused on the aeronautical meteorology case of Korea. As a policy option, cost recovery implies possibilities as well as limitations built in the concept.
