With world-known parks including the Silicon Valley (USA) and the One North (Singapore) as its benchmarks, the Qilin Technological Innovation Park sets its ambition at "an international innovation park and an international life community" and positions itself as a park for "high-end technologies, industries, talents and clients". In this way, it aims to become a pilot zone for innovation-driven economy nationwide and a low-carbon and ecological scientific town recognized worldwide. It has had its master-plan developed by the American Planning Association (APA), and its spacial layout is featured by one core, one axis and four zones. One core refers to the central core accommodating a high-end business center, a commercial center, a financial consulting center and an administrative center.

Four zones comprise a core R&D zone focusing on high-end R&D for the Park's dominant industries, an ecologically-recreational zone which develops high-end residence and recreational tourism based on the natural scenery of the Qinglong Mountain, and two general service zones featured by auxiliary services for the development of the Park.
Qilin Technological Innvation Park endeavors to develop smart industries and to build a smart new town, aiming to become Nanjing's Silicon Valley featured by integration of production, study and research. It invests a lot in low-carbon technologies and is establishing an R&D platform and a low-carbon technology exchange center for clean energy technologies, ccs technologies, energy-saving & emission reduction technologies and energy-saving & low-carbon testing technologies. It is also expected to become a carrier for hi-tech innovation and entrepreneurships, an entrepreneurial center for youths and a world-class incubator and accelerator.
