Abstract
Today, building and intensifying innovation capacity of the regional economy is viewed as a priority in Russia as it will help to set a path towards sustainable economic growth. The present paper aims to provide a scientific basis for enhancing the innovation capacity at the regional level. Universal research methods, system, historical, and statistical analyses, typological and classification modeling as well as structural and functional, subject-object, descriptive and comparative analyses provide the methodological basis of the study. The analysis of research and innovation activity in the regions of the South Federal District (SFD) has revealed the capacities of R&D sector and abilities of the industrial sector to use existing scientific reserves. It made it possible to define a number of measures to intensify innovation and technology development for a certain region of the South Federal District taking into account the specificity of this region. IT technologies, electronics, and manufacturing technologies are considered to be promising ones to intensify the innovation capacity of the SFD regions. IT systems technology can become the technology that will bring the regions to the world high-technology goods market. R&D in the sector of manufacturing technologies is mainly focused on transport vehicles and equipment production, metallurgical production, electrical equipment production, electronic and optical equipment production. Thus, the Rostov, Volgograd, and Krasnodar regions have good prospects to create the IT cluster which will contribute to mutual exchange of knowledge and close cooperation.
