Description The role of regions in promoting innovation is gaining increasing significance. For a policy to be efficient, it is first necessary to analyze the innovation performance and the character of the innovation system. The aim of this paper is to propose and implement a methodology for the evaluation of regional innovation systems using the index of the regional innovation system (IRIS) devised by the authors. The analysis is performed using the example of Czech NUTS3 regions. The indicators evaluated were divided into five groups (factors): Knowledge, Businesses, Intellectual property, Political support, and Results. Based on the standardization and rescaling of the factors, the IRIS was calculated. The regions were divided into groups by means of the cluster analysis. The highest value of the IRIS was achieved by Capital City Prague, followed by the South Moravian region. The lowest value was achieved by the Karlovy Vary region.
