This paper is devoted to a comparative analysis of the national innovation systems (NIS) of Russia and South Korea based on the data presented in the Global Innovation Index report from 2008 to 2021. It summarizes the theoretical approaches to the study of national innovation systems, and explains the relevance of this study in the context of combining systemic, structural-objective and functional approaches. The article considers the discussion, dedicated to the following question: which subject within the framework of national innovation systems is the locomotive of innovative development. Then it considers the role of the state, and accordingly its agents, as key actors and “builders” of national innovation systems. Comparison of countries based on the global innovation index data demonstrates the current situation of innovative development of Russia and South Korea, the weaknesses and strengths of these countries in this area, as well as the dynamics of their development on the basis of key indicators. In this view, the main state innovation management bodies are singled out as institutions of the state management system of national innovation systems in the above-mentioned countries, and their functions, powers and the relationship are analyzed. Based on these data, the article presents maps of public innovation management systems in Russia and South Korea. In addition, the article identifies the problems of functioning of the national innovation system in Russia from the point of view of the institutional system of state innovation management bodies and determines possible solutions based on the example of the Republic of Korea.
