Methodical Approaches to the Assessment of Innovative Region Susceptibility

Olga Nikolaevna Vladimirova, Aida Talyatovna Petrova


In modern conditions, questions assessing the effectiveness of innovative development of regions are among the most urgent. The generalization of global and domestic experience in implementing innovations indicates a discussion of issues in this area. The paper aims to study the indicators for assessing innovation. The authors of the study on the basis of terminological apparatus of innovation management clarify the concept of "innovation susceptibility of the region," define the relationship with the existing interpretation of the categories and conceptual apparatus. Consideration of the theoretical aspects of innovation susceptibility necessitates the development of its quantitative and qualitative parameters of evaluation. Authors proposed a methodological approach to the evaluation of innovative susceptibility region tested in the territories belonging to the Siberian Federal District. Comparison with the system of indicators used in the international practice and the practice of the countries in the CIS, confirms the correlation proposed indicators with indicators measuring innovation. At the same time, the use of the values of individual parameters for the integrated assessment of the susceptibility of the region's innovation is a fairly complex task associated with the introduction of a heterogeneous database performance. The paper proposes a comprehensive model for integrating disparate figures, the weight value of each factor and to identify priorities for the development of the region to achieve the target value. Empirical IP-repetition made on the basis of the static data and the processing results of initial authors of qualitative parameters for 2001-2009 years, as the absence of a source of statistical information for the last 4 years, limited to the time period of the study. This technique allows not only formalizing and defining the level of development of complex socio-economic systems at the micro and macro levels, to identify the potential for growth, but also based on the specified management of different levels of development prospects, identify priority areas of growth.
