Keywords: modern globalization processes, European education system, theoretical knowledge, innovations, profitable business, real customers


Globalization creates growing need for intensification of generating innovation. The most important platform for the formation of new ideas is higher education, where students can realize their ideas and transform them from theoretical ideas into profitable business projects. The European experience of such transformation is useful for the Ukrainian educational system. Since the study of the means of adapting foreign experience to support innovation in higher school of Ukraine was not paid sufficient attention to, there is a need for relevant research.

The aim of the research is the analysis of the experience of support and implementation of innovations of students in Europe at Lund University and Gdańsk University of Technology to identify the tools of its adaptation in higher education of Ukraine. The research methods are abstract–logical, analytical.

The paper analyzes experience of one of the oldest universities in the world – Lund University and it was revealed that education and carrying out research in the areas of engineering, law, sociology, economics and management, medicine, theology, art, music and drama takes place on its basis. Demola Innovation Center, created on the basis of the University, provides collaboration and open innovation through interdisciplinary interaction between student groups that work with real customers. On the basis of the Center communication between representatives of the businesses, the higher school and the real buyers is carried out. 

It was established that at Gdańsk University of Technology, support of innovation is realized within the innovation program "Horizon 2020" – a financial tool aimed at developing innovations to ensure the competitiveness of the EU economy under conditions of globalization.

It was found that the development of the European education system by implementing innovations has been going on for 25 years already. This experience, as the practice shows is quite successful. Incubators, created on the basis of the universities allow implementing the new economy. Funding today the innovation processes on the basis of higher education, the European government forms the platform for the development of profitable business as a guaranteed taxpayer in the future. We made a conclusion that the application of this practice in the Ukrainian higher education will intensify the processes of generating innovation, which, in its turn, will enhance the competitiveness of national higher education.

The scientific novelty of this work consists in identifying means of supporting innovation of the youth by creating innovation incubators, student research labs on the basis of higher education (University), which allow implementing new ideas, creating new jobs, increase the level of competition of national economies.

The practical value of the work lies in the fact that the use of the European experience of implementation of innovation through the development of scientific laboratories will generate ideas and increase the level of competitiveness of national education.

Further research will have to study the experience of other leading universities of the world in support of innovations.
