D.G. Rodionov, I.A. Rudskaya


The goal of this research is the development of the approach that allows to estimate the relative efficiency of Russian regional innovation systems. Russia is a federation with substantial diversity of innovation resources and results. It is very important to reveal the factors of efficiency in Russia, due to the substantial diversification of inputs and outputs of innovation activities in different regions. The Data Development Analysis is chosen as a base methodology for performing this analysis. The research is based on the annual data of 2010-2013. The results are the factors of efficiency that provide regional policy-makers with key directions of actions to increase the efficiency of innovation systems and through them – the performance of the national innovation system.
