The author identified the prerequisites for the emergence and benefits of using a synergistic approach to the study of innovative processes. The theoretical analysis showed the presence of a clear trend towards the growth of scientific interest in the study of the interaction processes of the participants of innovation systems, causing the appearance of synergistic effects. A theoretical review of recent studies by authors dealing with the evaluation of the synergistic effects of innovation is presented. Final conclusions are formulated on the benefits of developing a synergistic methodology in order to research innovative systems and present directions for future research.
