The method (methodology). The methods of statistical analysis and comparison, forecasting method on the basis of extrapolation, methodical approaches of GAP-analysis have formed the methodological basis of research.

Results. The current state and dynamics of Transcarpathian region innovative activity have been analyzed. The factors which influence the development of the innovation process have been determined. Predictive models of the innovation dynamics in the region are constructed.
