Abstract
In the article theoretical and practical aspects of influence of a clustering on the regional economy of the country are considered. In modern conditions, globalization of economy interacts with local trends of cooperation which increases communication between of a cluster. For several decades various approaches, both to understanding of the cluster, and to factors of development of a clustering are formed. To begin with there is a factor of development of the innovation potential of a cluster and assessment of its influence. In this article we present he point of view of both the Russian authors, and the foreign researchers noting the innovation orientation of activity of clusters, their complex impact on development of economy, benefits of formation, development and realization of the innovation potential. Authors note the tendency of clusters to innovate, generate new information and knowledge, implement innovations. A number of authors consider regional clusters in the concept of a glocalization, noting complementarity of global and local tendencies in activity of clusters that it promotes forming of a glocalized innovation in their activity. In this regard, the research purpose of this article consists in assessment of the impact of the innovation potential of a regional cluster on development of economy of the region or country. The authors have conducted a case study on the innovation opportunities of a regional cluster – the Petrochemical cluster of the Omsk region. The methodology of this research includes general scientific, empirical, social, practical researches. The article describes the Strategy of Innovative Development of the Russian Federation, where pointed out benefits of the clustering to national economy and its role in the innovative development of regions and the states. Omsk region is assessed in terms of its innovative attractiveness for Russian and international business. Based on the BCG-matrix, the cluster portfolio of the Omsk region is assessed. It includes both existing and potential clusters. The petrochemical cluster takes the leading place in a cluster portfolio of the Omsk region, so the purposes, benefits and key performance indicators in the innovation aspect are allocated to it. Based on the SWOT-analysis method, an assessment of the innovative potential of the Petrochemical Cluster is given. The main strategies for it are formed taking into account the influence of internal and external factors. In the introduced strategic pyramid of all levels, the interrelation of the innovation strategy of the Russian Federation, the Omsk region and a petrochemical cluster is marked out. In the conclusion aspects of influence of the innovation potential of a regional cluster on the innovative development of the region are revealed.
