The article discusses the current methodological problems of the relationship between theoretical and applied knowledge in the context of the development of new industrial revolution technologies. In the course of the study, it was argued that the basic linear-chain model of the relation of applied knowledge has been replaced by the model of emergent-exponential relation, which is important not only from the epistemological point of view, but also in the context of the development of science in terms of substantiating the need for implementation.
