Title INNOVATIVE CHALLENGES TO UNIVERSITIES UNDER CONDITIONS OF UNCERTAINTY OF SOCIAL INTERACTION STRATEGIES
Author(-s) Ladyzhets N.S.
Abstract Modern societies can be seen as globalized risk societies competing in the face of instability of intergovernmental and social interaction. Universities adhering to the principles of academic ethics and cooperation are the initiators of the development of joint projects, the consolidation of priorities for innovative training practices and research areas. The article analyzes contemporary forms and controversies of "academic capitalism", justifies the appeal to the notion of "academic imperialism". Innovative entrepreneurship as a new paradigm of higher education is considered in connection with the processes of globalization and the formation of a knowledge economy. Accordingly, innovation and enterprise are presented as major challenges to modern universities. Theoretical analysis is complemented by a "review of showcases" of the most effective practices for organizing multi-level cooperation on the American and European continents. In particular, approbation of the concept of the "triple helix" in the development of interinstitutional interaction of innovative universities, business and government is being considered. The Conclusion emphasizes that the global economy, being developed on the counter-competitive principles of competition and rivalry, presupposes the universality, transparency and measurability of criteria for assessing successful progress. In this regard, attention is drawn to the need to improve the methodology for ranking the indicators of scientific excellence and innovative technological achievements of competing universities.
Keywords global society, knowledge society, innovations, entrepreneurial universities, innovative universities, global capitalism, global imperialism, the concept of the "triple helix", university ratings, university management
