Researched is the problem of human capital as key factor in development of innovations in knowledge economy. The system of scientific personnel training as an institution that ensures development of high-quality human capital has passed a number of stages, graduate school restructuring was the last one. The article presents retrospective analysis of Russian state policy in this area.

Shortage of scientific personnel, caused also by a lack of incentives for young people, hinders innovation processes in the economy of the country and its regions. The author considers systematic approach to training of highly qualified scientific personnel as one of the ways to solve this problem.

Key words: human capital, innovative development, systems approach, highly qualified personnel, post-graduate school, doctoral school, scientific and research center.
