Materials and Methods. The correlation-and-regression, system, structural, and statistical analysis and grouping, theories of economic growth, modern concepts of transitional economic systems have been used as a methodological framework of the study.
Results. The authors’ methods for analyzing the level of innovation- and technology-driven development and identifying the interregional disparities of innovation- and technology-driven growth of the national economy have been developed and tested. Based on the integral values of innovation- and technology-led growth of the regions, the nature of interregional disparities in the analyzed area has been identified and explained. Six groups of regions of Ukraine in accordance with the values of the integrated index of innovation- and technology-driven development of regional economies have been identified. The strategic imperatives of further innovation and technology development for each group have been determined.

Conclusions. The scientific and methodological principles and practical recommendations set out in the study aim at improving the efficiency of the national economy, ensuring its sustainable viability, and realizing the potential in the system of international division of labor.
