Almost every educational institution tries to find independently different forms of integration with companies. Unfortunately, there are almost no mechanisms supporting real, but not declarative integration. That is why, the conference is devoted to research and development of potential model of business and universities integration; university correspondence to the modern requirements of labour market in such hi-tech sphere as Information and Communication Technologies.

 

Higher education is one of the strategically important spheres of Ukrainian society development. Beginning with 2005 Ukraine became one of the countries-participants of Bologna process. Euro integration processes taking place in our country influence this important sphere as well.

 

Ukrainian system of education faces the following tasks: correspondence to the European standards, adaptation of curricula, active introduction of ICT in educational process, creation of interuniversity infrastructure, development of the system of life-long education using ICT.

 

Specialists training especially in the field of information and communication technologies, requires close cooperation of universities and users of their services – for example, software developing companies.  

 

•          The graduates of higher educational institutions must have competences required by labour market. The Bologna mechanism of these competences determination is “European Qualification Framework”.  It includes not only universities and educational authorities but also the companies-employers of university graduates.

 

•          The quality evaluation of specialists’ training must be done by final users of the university educational services.

 

•         Professional development of employees is one of the indicators of a successful company.

It includes enterprises, organizations, institutions, establishments, associations of different patterns of ownership providing innovative activity support services (financial, consulting, marketing, information communication, legal, educational etc.). The purpose of creation of a such infrastructure is assuring of the effective use of national scientific and technical potential, increase of the level of innovation and competitiveness of the national economy.
