Abstract. Today, the issue of international cooperation is extremely acute and is of great importance both for the political and economic life of any country, and for the scientific and technical component of state development. In modern conditions, when the concept of borders as a separate strip between individual states has practically disappeared, the importance of establishing close cooperation between border areas is of invaluable benefit not only to these territories, but to the country as a whole. Not least, this fact concerns the scientific and technical sphere. The concept, essence and content of such an area of international cooperation as cross-border cooperation is given in the publication. It has been established that the institutional basis for cross-border cooperation is implemented through the creation of the so-called Euroregions. Successful examples of cooperation between European countries in the context of scientific and technical cooperation are presented. It is concluded that in order to further develop international cooperation between Ukraine and the member countries of the European Union, in particular, in the scientific and technical field, it is necessary to deepen contacts within the framework of cross-border cooperation. To achieve these goals, first of all, it is necessary to update the domestic regulatory framework in this area, modernize it, reforming it to the requirements of European legislation.

Keywords: cross-border cooperation, scientific and technical activity, legal regulation, innovative development, technology transfer, foreign experience.
