Description There are many tools to measure and compare the innovation potential and the innovation performance. Each of these instruments uses more or less similar indicators. This article identifies the indicators related to the research, development and innovation, which are available at regional level NUTS3 (14 regions) in the Czech Republic. These indicators are analysed with respect to their development in the period 2001-2014. Via a coefficient calculated they are subsequently combined into one aggregate indicator characterizing the innovation potential of each region. This merger was made both for the beginning and the end of the reporting period to be able to compare the development of innovation potential of Czech regions. Absolutely the best results were achieved in Prague followed by the South Moravian Region and the worst are found in the Karlovy Vary Region in the long term. However, through a calculated coefficient it was found that there is stabilization in the development of regional differences of innovation potential of Czech regions. In the last part, the article outlines options for further follow-up research.
