Introduction. The issue considered in the article is of relevance due to the innovative vector of modern social and economic development, as well as to the inevitability of transition to the new, sixth, technological order based on a knowledge-intensive mode of production. Processes associated with mastering emerging technologies actively proceed now in the world’s leading economies. The strategic competitiveness of Russia is limited by the state of productive forces and the level of development of industrial relations. To rectify the present situation an impetus that can accelerate the dynamics of economic processes is necessary. The aim of the study is to identify the role of juvenile potential in ensuring sustainable economic development, as well as to determine the conditions for its provision and implementation as a factor in the transition to the sixth technological order.

Materials and Methods. The research methodology was based on the general scientific methods (those of scientific abstraction, unity of the historical and the logical, analysis and synthesis, induction and deduction, comparison and analogy) and the special methods of cognition (the integrative method that implies the necessity to analyze economic, social, legal and other prerequisites). The information base of the research was made up of official statistical data, legal acts, and scientific works in the field of human and juvenile potential.

Results. On the basis of the identified system of indicators of juvenile potential, an assessment of its elements and conditions of its fulfillment as a factor in reproduction of productive forces of the sixth technological order was carried out. The revealed disproportions and the negative factors that caused them make it possible to determine the conditions for effective realization of juvenile potential as a social resource for progressive development of the Russian economy in a strategic perspective.

Discussion and Conclusion. The scientific importance of the obtained results consists in the elaboration of the scientific concept of juvenile potential, its conceptual and categorical framework, as well as in the systematization of theoretical approaches to the development of performance indicators. The results can be used to substantiate promising directions of socio-economic, youth, and education policies, as well as those dealing with organization and monitoring of socio-economic development of the state and territories.

Keywords: economic development, neo-industrial productive forces, juvenile potential, social resource, innovative development of the economy
