One of the most important tasks for today is stimulate of innovative activity of the regions, the uneven distribution of which may be a barrier to formation of the innovative potential of the state in general. The purpose of this study is to identify the input factors that determine the basic requirements for implementation of the task, consisting in obtaining results in the form of a regional endogenous innovation process.
Materials and methods. To achieve this goal the authors identified the components and drivers of endogenous innovation processes, analyzed a model, demonstrating innovative processes, carried out their comparative evaluation, and, on the basis thereof, proved the need to form the regional environment, focused on production and dissemination of knowledge.
Results. The competitiveness of the regions was defined in terms of their capability to organize the most favorable environment for development of advanced technology and innovation. The authors actualized a priority to the regional economic system as the primary level of formation of a unified national system of innovation.
Conclusions. On the basis of the analysis the researchers identified the major strengths, the use of which can enable regions to significantly enhance their innovative potential.
