Technological Transformations and Their Implications for Higher Education
The next 6th technological cycle is starting just now and will be mainly concentrated on the following technologies: nano-, bio-, info- and cogno- (NBIC). For that matter, the tasks of Ukrainian society could be separated into two spheres: education and R&D. The world trend in education is the creation of NBIC faculties for manpower grounding in an interdisciplinary understanding of new technologies. In R&D, the directions’ spectra are wider and include bilateral and multidisciplinary cooperation and collaboration for the creation of entirely new approaches and technologies. Fortunately, Ukraine is strong in material science and has well enough known in the world achievements in bioengineering, informatics and even in the creation of training complexes which are concerning to cogno-technologies.
