The cases of entrepreneurial universities who conduct enterprisers like activities are increasing continuously in these days. Entrepreneurial activities by universities include university enterprises establishment and management, direct and indirect investment, incubating startup businesses, and diverse university-industry cooperation. In this study, the roles and contributions of universities in the development of science parks are explored with a case of Zhongguancun in Beijing. In particular, the roles of four universities such as Peking, Tsinghua, Renmin, and Chinese Academy of Science were intensively focused and investigated. Interpretive case research methodology was adopted for this study and in-depth interview and secondary data analysis methods were used for the investigation. The result of this study suggests that universities can do essential roles in the development of science parks and can contribute to the development and growth of science parks through proactive and direct economic activities as well as traditional and defensive university-industry cooperation.
