Abstract: The paper deals with the issues of developing and institutionalization of the common science, technology and innovation policy of the European Community. The main attention is paid to analysis of the official documents of the European Commission related to science, technology and innovation policy. The factors that influenced developing of the common policy and its objectives are considered as well as the main initiatives and ways to achieve them. It is concluded that the European experience in particular the use of program-oriented approach and the establishment of coordination mechanisms, should be used more actively in the science, technology and innovation policy of Ukraine.

Keywords: common science, technology and innovation policy, European Community, research and development, European Commission, Joint Research Center.
