The article examines the role of higher education institutions in the development of eco-industrial parks in terms of sustainable development. It is substantiated that the concept of sustainable development sets conditions for the development of infrastructure of eco-industrial parks, which should be built using environmental materials, optimization of water supply and energy supply, environmental safety of industrial effluents and waste, the formation of a closed cycle of resource use in accordance with the circular economy. It is determined that in order to develop an effective national policy for the development of eco-industrial parks, it is necessary to use such tools as: management of national policy towards the creation of eco-industrial parks, mandatory requirements for regulation of eco-industrial parks, local levels and information tools. Universities play a particularly important role in these processes. It is proved that the information tools that can be implemented in the educational activities of higher education institutions on the example of universities include: inclusion in the variable part of educational programs within the formation of individual educational trajectory of students; conducting advanced training courses for employees of various enterprises and industries, stakeholders on the functioning and creation of eco-industrial parks; providing consulting services to companies involved in park management; scientific and innovative work in the direction of development of technologies and processes of activity of eco-industrial parks.
