Relevance of the study due to problems, that this article describes an approach for modeling of diffusion of innovation in the sphere of biotechnology. Authors proposed a sectoral typology of diffusion of innovation and matched it with technological paradigm shifting. Probation of this model was realized by hierarchical clustering analysis of branches attributed to promote biotechnologies. Central Russia was used for modeling in order to examine a shift from industrial to innovation paradigm. Authors studied cross-regional and cross-sector diffusion of innovation and determined preconditions for growth of hi-tech industries. Regions with strong industrial clusters, diversified infrastructure and R&D base are distinguished to promote biotechnological innovations.
