The paper highlights the key stages in the development of innovation activity research theory. Based on Ukrainian realities, the necessity to improve the national methodology has been demonstrated. The approach to study of territorial innovation activity organization in context of socio-economic growth poles formation, which involves the implementation of geographical patenting process analysis has been proposed.

Key words:
