Abstract   |   Authors   |   References
At the present stage, socio-economic development of the country and its individual territories is largely influenced by innovations that contribute to achieving technological superiority, increasing competitiveness and promoting economic sustainability. Innovations are also an important factor in the development of sectors of the national economy, a condition for increasing the efficiency of economic entities as a strategic basis for economic development. All this testifies to the importance of state support for modern high-tech industries, the need to promote innovation in the manufacturing sector and the social sphere, management, environmental protection and optimal use of natural resources. The introduction of innovations and new technology is promoted by the national economic policy aimed at maintaining and stimulating innovation activity, boosting the innovation process at all its stages and at all levels of the economy. The policy currently being implemented has a certain impact on the innovation process. However, many of its directions are insufficiently effective; they do not fully take into account the available resource base and the specifics of innovation activity. The unresolved problems existing in this area increase the theoretical and practical significance of studying the issue of stimulating innovation. The scientific novelty of the research lies in the development of methodological approaches to substantiating methods and tools for promoting innovation. The results can be used to analyze and forecast innovative development of national and regional macrosystems in order to form recommendations for policy changes. The scientific significance of the study lies in the possibility of using proposals to promote innovation in the state innovation policy
