The paper presents an analytical review of modern sources on the issues of determining, classifying and evaluating a region’s intellectual capital. The study identified the most common approaches to intellectual capital assessment, which need to be adjusted taking into account the specificity of the statistical reporting of the Russian Federation, and also because of the need for detailing certain types of intellectual capital. The authors proposed their own approach to assessing a region’s intellectual capital using a system of indicators based on the calculation of the integral indicator tested on the example of the Russian Federation’s regions. The authors have compiled a map of the intensity of the intellectual capital of the Russian Federation’s regions, which is the basis for their comparison by the magnitude of the studied indicator, as well as benchmarking of the key areas of its development for outsider regions.
