The article deals with the issues of innovation security of Western Russia’s coastal areas. The aim of the research is to point out the specific problems associated with their cyclic dynamics, as well as the mechanisms to reach innovation security in the Western Russia. The study analyzes the problems of innovation development in the context of regional and global cycles of innovation generation being dependent on the initial conditions of reproduction cycle. Comparative analyzes on the dynamics within each of consequent stages of innovation cycle and their interconnectedness is based on statistical data for the coastal areas of South-West and North-West Russia. Differences in the strategy for overcoming innovation insecurity and disconnection of the stages of innovation cycle are found between southern and northern coastal regions. The study offers a new approach to study innovation security of a region, basing on the concept of synchronous and asynchronous generation and diffusion of innovations in relation to regional, national and global technological and reproduction cycles. Particularities of innovation security of a coastal border region are given. Innovation economic clusters in the regions are found to be the major resource to maintain the innovation security by integrating into global and national innovation cycles. The results of the research can be used in regional governance and innovation development policy for the coastal border regions of Russia. The findings and proposed approaches support the development of the instruments for evaluation and diagnostics of innovation security of the coastal regions of the European part of Russia.
