Introduction: in the conditions of transition to sustainable development the increase in the activity of the integrative associations of states, including the European Union, takes place in the development and transfer of environmentally sound technologies as well as the dissemination of scientific knowledge. In this regard, the purpose of the study is to elaborate a broad view of the role of issues of facilitating the dissemination of knowledge and technology transfer in the interest of global transition to sustainable development in the revamped regional EU strategy concerning sustainable development. The objectives of the study are to conduct a sequential analysis of the problematics of the dissemination of scientific knowledge and technology transfer in the interest of sustainable development in the EU legal acts and policy papers and also to reveal the specifics of the EU policy in this area. Methods: the article uses the general scientific methods (systemic, structural methods) and the methods of legal research (comparative and formal-legal ones). Results: the research substantiates a new perspective of such forms of the EU international scientific and technological cooperation with third states as the dissemination of knowledge and technology transfer in terms of facilitating the transition to sustainable development on a global basis. The author determines that these forms are aimed not only at increasing the competitiveness of Europe and the scientific and technological potential of states-collaborators, but at solving the large-scale tasks of transition to sustainable development as harmonization of the three dimensions of development. The EU pays special attention to involving developing and hard developing countries into international scientific and technological cooperation as a condition of solving the problems of their social and economic development. Conclusions: the EU’ contribution to shifting the scientific and technological progress to sustainable development is based on the already functioning legal framework and conducted as part of the infrastructure available. Simultaneously, the EU is far from the exclusive position of a technology and knowledge donor and is striving to develop other forms of international scientific and technological cooperation, for example, joint scientific researches and capacity-building.

Key words: sustainable development, the European Union, developing countries, technology gap, policy instruments, environmentally sound technologies.
