This study aims to offer an approach to typologize of regions depending on their resource base. The study relies on analysis and synthesis methods, method of abstractions, methods of generalization and typology, and analysis of socio-economic time-series. The approach is based on a three-stage evaluation of resource-based comparative advantages of regions. We distinguish between two main types of resources: 'traditional' (human potential, natural resources, financial and productive assets) and

For the second type of resources, we used the Russian Regional Innovation Development Ranking data compiled by the Higher School of Economics. We also investigated the role of resources (tangible or intangible) and identified the two corresponding types of economic sectors -those relying on tangible and intangible resources. This led us to build and compare regional economies' profiles with the prevalence of tangible or intangible resources.
