This research aims to explore the dynamic co-opetition of industrial cluster evolution based on the Lotka-Volterra model. Particularly, an empirical co-opetition case of industrial innovation parks, Southern and Central Taiwan Science Park (STSP and CTSP), will be used to demonstrate the validity of the dynamic approach. The results reveal that the competitive relationship between STSP and CTSP may be a predator-prey interaction type. The existence of STSP and its investment growth will be of positive assistance in developing the latter CTSP area. Contrarily, the growth of CTSP will probably compete with the resources of STSP and inhibit the sustained growth of STSP. In addition, an equilibrium point does not exist in the competition relationship of these two clusters from 2003 to 2010, in which STSP and CTSP areas should coexist with sustained growth in this current short-term stage.
