Nowadays, knowledge becomes more and more important in the economy. Its increasing importance has placed knowledge-creating institutions in the focus of economic development strategies. Among these institutions, special attention is paid to universities because they ensure qualified workforce and provide the basis of new knowledge and innovation which are necessary for the long-term competitiveness of a company. Moreover, these factors could be the main drivers of the development of a territory. This is particularly important for lagging regions with universities because these regions can build upon universities to connect the regional economy to the processes of knowledge-based economy. The tools of economic development initiatives have also broadened with university-based development tools which contain the science parks as a subtype. In addition to the above, as another important megatrend, the European Union is paying increasing attention to the subject of Responsible Research and Innovation (hereafter: “RRI”), which is not only one of the flagships of the 2014-2020 programming period but, in our opinion, has a major influence on the future level of success of science parks. The aim of this study is to review the subject of science parks – primarily from the point of view of the role of universities in defining and walking these parks’ professional routes. We wish to pay special attention to how responsible innovation can be introduced and consciously managed in the professional work carried out in science parks.
