Abstract. In this work, the authors propose a methodological approach to study the impact of using NBICtechnologies on the economic growth of the regions of the Russian Federation. The authors show that among NBIC-technologies they are ICT that have the greatest impact on economic growth. The assessment tools are integrated empirical analysis methods. At the first stage, a cluster analysis was carried out using the k-means method according to the per-capita GRP, the level of population income and the level of ICT use, under which three groups of Russian regions were distinguished, characterized by low, medium and high dynamics of economic growth. At the second stage, a canonical correlation analysis was carried out and analytical expressions of the interconnections of economic growth indicators and a set of indicators characterizing the development and use of ICT in the regions of the Russian Federation were obtained. The study proves the relationship between ICT and economic growth in the regions of the Russian Federation. The greatest influence is exerted by indicators such as the number of mobile cell phones and broadband Internet subscribers. The canonical correlation analysis for the selected groups of regions did not give positive results, the results for the first cluster, which is characterized by low dynamics of economic growth, turned out to be statistically significant. Most likely, this is due to the fact that in this group using ICT gives the greatest effect. However, the substantiation of this hypothesis requires the expansion of the statistical base of the study, both in time and in terms of expanding the composition of indicators that reflect not only economic, but also social aspects of the processes under study.


Key words: ICT, economic growth, NBIC-technologies, cluster analysis, canonical analysis.
