The ideas of regional innovative development and the role of innovations in promoting economic growth are discussed. This study examines the differentiation and unevenness of regional development as well as a significant imbalance of regional innovation systems in Russia. The regions have been clustered in two directions “the research potential” and “the innovative performance,” which has allowed not only to estimate the stage of innovative development, but also to qualitatively identify existing imbalances in them. The cluster analysis of the Arctic regions has emphasized strong and weak sides and has carried out the typology of regions into some group for stimulation of innovative development and eliminating the narrow places and ensures continuity of the innovation cycle.


Circumpolar area Innovative potential Innovative performance Innovations 



The article is prepared on the basis of research carried out with the financial support of the grant RGNF (project №15-32-01350) “Innovative development of the Tyumen region’s circumpolar area: the possibility of localization and the effects of inter-regional cooperation.”
