Subject. The article addresses multi-level innovative subsystems of catching-up type in various countries of the world and in Russia.
Objectives. The purpose is to reveal the special aspects of investment mechanism for innovative subsystems development at various levels, in different countries of the world and in Russia.
Methods. The study draws on methods of logical and statistical analysis.
Results. I developed a method to classify different groups of countries of the world. Using the statistical data, they are divided into types of national economies by the quality of their economy’s information base development and by participation in the fifth technological mode. Based on the analysis of the previous experience of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in developing the catch-up models and the analysis of the current model of innovative subsystems of Russia and its regions, I offer a method for transition to a catch-up model.
Conclusions. It is essential to work out public policy measures for the use of public-private partnership mechanisms. This will enable to develop the elements of a catching-up economy model by creating innovation chains around scientific and educational institutions, in which nationally located transnational corporations would directly participate in processes of their intangible assets renewal.

Keywords: catch-up model, digitalization, national economy, information base
