The history of the Institutes functioning starts from 1964, when Lviv Department of the Institute of Economics of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine was established.

After becoming the independent state, Ukraine faced the crucial issues of forming of the regional policy and of the rational use of production, labour, natural and intellectual potential of Ukrainian regions. Considering the urgency of the problematic and the available scientific potential, the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine has established the Institute of Regional Research of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine on the basis of Lviv Department of the Institute of Economics of the AS according to the Regulation 233 of October 19, 1994. The Institute was encharged with the tasks of complex research of the problems of management of social and economic development of Ukrainian regions.
