Development of mechanisms of innovation processes in the regional innovation systems of the catching up economy

The present work is devoted to the study of the nature of the factors and mechanisms of innovative processes in regional innovation systems with a catching-up type of economy. The paper shows that further development of cooperation between subjects of innovative activity and he development of technological entrepreneurship in the regions of Russia is impossible without a planned process of regionalization of the ecosystem of innovative business. The paper substantiates that the «Regional Center of Incubation and Acceleration» should become the basis for the development of the ecosystem of innovative entrepreneurship in the region of the country. A model for converting business ideas into technological start-ups in regional innovation systems with a catch-up economy is proposed. Also, the paper suggests key indicators for assessing the effectiveness of the regional innovation system, without which it is impossible to implement dynamic control over the ongoing transformations in the innovation system

Keywords: regional innovation systems (RIS), innovative territorial clusters, R&D, strategic alliances, innovative companies, venture capital, catching up economy
