The purpose of the article is to study problems and formulate recommendations for ensuring the formation of the model of the innovation economy in Ukraine and the formation of principles of effective management of the innovative development of the country. Methodology. To achieve these objective, the article used a system of general and special methods of investigation processes and phenomena in their relationship and development, namely, the systematic and structured approach, methods of theoretical analysis and synthesis (for the characteristics of the concepts of “innovation economy”, “innovation development” and other related concepts). Thanks to the system-structural approach, innovative economy and innovative development are presented as a set of elements and properties, interactions between them create a new integrity of modern economic relations on a global scale and the scale of a single country (as a part of the global economic environment). Results of the survey showed understanding of the role and place of the “innovative economy” as a concept that characterizes conditions of the interaction of economic entities in the modern economy, with taking into account the peculiarities and priorities of the formation of this economic model in countries with a transition economy. Ukraine, as a country of transition economy, is at an early stage of formation of an effective system of innovative development, and at this stage resolving conflicts of macro-, meso-, and micro-economic interests and objectives in the economic system is an important factor in overcoming the inertia of development. Reference points of the formation and development of innovative economy in Ukraine, with taking into account the experience of today’s developed economies should be: high quality of life as a result – its high purchasing power, the ability to buy high-tech products that can be achieved due to the high cost and the quality of human capital; at the same time, the quality of human capital has to be ensured by increasing the level of education and science, which determines the possibility to implement technologies and production mainly in IV-VI technological structure. Practical implications. The stimulation of innovation-oriented development of Ukraine should be based on the creation of a certain form of interaction between the subjects of the economy within the framework of the management system, built on the principles, ideas, and priorities laid down in the concept of “innovative economy”. These conditions allow creating an environment within the country, characterized by the redundancy of proposals of innovative solutions and as a result, effective implementation in practice the most productive part of them, due to competition, innovation, ideas, technologies, and processes. Value/originality. Presented instruments of coordination of goals and interests focus on specific, concrete model of development at all levels of the hierarchical subordination of goals and interests through macro, meso, and micro needs establishment, implementation, and wide dissemination of innovation as an essential condition to ensure the competitiveness of enterprises, sectors of the economy at the domestic and foreign markets.
