The methodological framework is based on a number of theoretical provisions, which integration allowed to substantiate the concept of improving mechanisms of master students' research competencies formation in universities. Correlation analysis with the use of datasets characterising the effectiveness of the mechanisms of research competencies formation was carried out. The approach to improving master students' research competencies, presented in this research, is in line with the world and national trends of development in higher education sphere, which creates assumptions for the shift to the new quality of training competitive staff for regional innovation systems.
