Journal of Business Strategy: « Chinese Science and Technology Parks: The Emergence of a New Model », Jolly & Zhu, 2012, Vol. 33, Issue 5, pp. 4-13.

Only a few years ago, China was not on the map when talking about research and development (R&D). Things have changed dramatically. An increasing number of foreign companies are now considering China as a possible destination for R&D labs. While the Chinese territory is mostly low-tech, there exist some islands of very high technical content: these are the Chinese networks of science and technology (S&T) parks. Not surprisingly, the American model has been the benchmark in China. While the Chinese S&T parks originated as a reference to the Silicon Valley model, after more than 20 years of experience, these parks are no more a simple copy-paste. They have developed their own idiosyncratic features. The objective of this paper is to highlight those differences in order to help Western managers better understand the Chinese context. Six points can be stressed in this adaptation to the Chinese context. These developments were inferred from an extensive literature review (in English, in Chinese and in French) that was completed by an archive research as well as interviews of heads of Chinese S&T parks.
