Abstract. The article is devoted to the results of the annual monitoring of the activities of higher education institutions of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine) in the field of technology transfer. The purpose of the study is to analyze the results of the transfer of created the higher education institutions based on the results of scientific, technical and innovative technologies for implementation in public practice, identify its main problems and ways to solve them in modern society. The research was carried out by the Ukrainian Institute of Scientific and Technical Expertise and Information according to the developed system of indicators and approved methodology using information on the results of innovation activities by budget managers. The obtained results show that in 2020 the higher education institutions transferred more than half of the total number of technologies transferred by the main managers of budget funds for strategic priority areas of innovation. Almost all technologies created by the higher education institutions were transferred to the order of industrial sector enterprises with a share of 96,4 % (in 2019 — 99,1 %, in 2018 — 80,4 %) in the total number of technologies transferred to industrial enterprises. For the last three years, the Ministry of Education and Science has been a leader among other managers in both domestic and foreign markets. The vast majority of technologies in the domestic and all technologies in the foreign market are transferred to customers through “know-how, agreements for the acquisition (transfer) of technology”. Technologies for 2018–2020 were transferred according to all approved strategic priorities, most of them according to priority 5 (medicine). Among the 23 higher education institutions operating in the field of transfer in 2020, the leader is Sumy State University (as in 2019 and 2018), which transferred more than half of the total number of transferred technologies, all — to the industrial sector. In 2018–2020, more than half of the technologies transferred to the domestic market, and almost all — on the foreign market were developed by the Ministry of Education and Science, of which almost all — universities. These technologies have a higher competitiveness and demand compared to technologies obtained by scientists from other domestic structures, which allows the Ministry of Education and Science among other fund managers to maintain a leading position in the field of transfer in both markets, including industry. Thus, the higher education institutions created and transferred innovative products for direct implementation in public practice and technological reequipment of enterprises at the sectoral level. The main problem of the transfer is that the transferred technologies were created only at the expense of enterprises and customer organizations for direct implementation, which narrows the opportunities for attracting the higher education institutions for effective implementation of modern society development strategies at regional and local levels. In order to further improve and expand the directions and opportunities of scientific, scientific-technical and innovative activities of the the higher education institutions, it is proposed to take into account world and European experience in the strategies of free economic development, including universities. sustainable development and its goals in order to increase the socio-economic development of society at the international, regional and local levels.

Keywords: technology transfer, higher education institutions, university, result, strategic priorities, industrial enterprises, public practice.
