Abstract. The technique of assessing the innovative potential of the regions is considering. The basic methods for assessing innovative potential are proposed, these methods have been tested in relation to the scientific and technological complex of economic zones. The proposed methods have advantages in comparison with expert and statistical methods of assessment, allowing minimizing the error in the estimates obtained. The article considers and analyzes local and international methodological approaches to assessing regional innovative development. The study identifies general trends and methodological approaches to assessing the innovative development of the region, also calculates the innovation index for each region for a comparative assessment of the innovative potential of Azerbaijan. The methodology used in this work was improved taking into account the national and specific features of Azerbaijan, statistical indicators in this area, the collection and processing of information and the innovative potential of the regions. As a result of the study, recommendations on the role of regions in the development of the economy and regional competitiveness were made. The scientific and practical value of the results lies in the possibility of their application in combination with the analysis of official statistics in the process of improving the state scientific, technical and innovation policy in the direction of more intensive use of scientific knowledge and achievements in the interests of modernizing the economy of Azerbaijan. The proposed approach is able to ensure the information integration of all subjects of scientific organizations and carry out comprehensive studies of production, innovation and economic management processes in the framework of the development of science.
