Spatial Perspective on Regional Innovation System


  • Anna A. Mikhaylova


Article deals with the peculiarities in modeling the regional innovation system (RIS) as a form of territorial social system characterized by a specific set of properties of the systemic, innovative and spatio-positional nature. The author analyzes the existing models of RIS with an emphasis on the formation of generalized ideas about the composition, structure and relations of RIS with the external environment. The study suggests a unique approach to the modeling of RIS, which is defined as a localized cluster-network system that combines different types of actors being systematically involved in the innovation process embedded in the institutional environment of the region. The problem of spatial boundaries of RIS in the scale of national innovation and regional systems is considered.
