Description Great attention is now being paid to the development of an environment favourable for launching and diffusion of innovations because they are generally considered a key factor of the socio-economic development. In the framework of the innovation policy the competences are transferred to regional level in a significant way. Locality and spatial proximity are important for innovation development, because they allow creating a unique competitive advantage. Each region is specific and different from others. Accordingly, it is not possible to accept the one-size-fits-all concept in the field of innovation development support but the support should be adapted to specific features of individual regions. In the article the differentness of innovation environment is demonstrated on the example of two regions – the South Moravian and the Moravian-Silesian Regions. These regions have several common characteristics but in some aspects they differ from each other. The contribution contains the comparison of selected aspects that form the innovation environment in both regions.
