Abstract: We took databases of the National Information and Analytical Center for monitoring innovation infrastructure of scientific and technological activities and regional innovation systems and the Web portal of innovation and business information support "innovations and entrepreneurship", webometrics database according to rankings of all Russian universities as well as the database of the Russian Federal State Statistics Service on the gross regional product for all regions of Russia as an empirical basis in order to determine the regression relationship between the number of organisations of the regional innovation and university infrastructure and the gross regional product. Data on the first two innovation databases had been collected as of the end of December 2014 and the distribution of universities according to the Russian regions was made according to Webometrics data (July, 2015) and university websites. Initially high determination coefficients R2 obtained in the course of searching the relationship between the number of innovation infrastructure organisations and universities according to two databases for all Russian regions were sharply decreasing, when excluding the data for Moscow and Saint Petersburg. The obtained results if compared with the gross regional product and the population of regions, allow planning the allocation of the university and innovation infrastructure according to regions of Russia. Further, the article also explores linear regression equations obtained between the above mentioned databases number of organisations of the regional innovation infrastructure on the one part and the gross regional product on the other part for the years 2007 and 2014. It is obvious that the Russian regional innovation infrastructure is low-developed, that is why it is not still the engine for economic growth of regions but on the contrary, economic strength of regions their urban infrastructure and culture are the driver for the development of the regional innovation infrastructure.
