The presented information is a part of the authors’ research in the field of effect exerted by innovative development of coal business on competitiveness of a region. The described conceptual model of innovation-based transformation of the coal industry in Kuzbass rests upon coordination of interests of business and authority with the purpose to improve competitive ability of a region. With this model, it is proposed to develop a route map for modernization of regional coal mining industry, which should create conditions for the coal industry to change over from being a donor to becoming a driver of economics in the Kemerovo region. At the same time, this will enable appraisal of federal and regional reserves to be efficiently used in implementation of this ambitious, difficult and expensive “project”.
