The theoretical and methodological basis of fundamental teachings, the development of the modern paradigm of the digital ecosystem on the issues of understanding antitrust compliance, approaches and criteria for its applicability are presented. An analysis of the local regulations on the application of antitrust compliance in the field of higher education showed the use of a paternalistic approach. The foreign experience of law enforcement on the introduction of key components of antitrust compliance, changes in public norms and the development of corporate programs as a guideline for considering new digital phenomena and the lawful use of components, considering regional, industry and economic characteristics in the Russian market, is presented. Counteraction to anticompetitive manifestations in Russian practice is distinguished by a complex set of offenses related to corruption. The platform model of antitrust compliance of a digital solution based on corporate norms is driven by the emergence of new digital goods / services, for example, online structures; new digital institutions such as smart contracts; new “intermarket” market participants and new digital market elements as substitutes for traditional market elements, as a database of personal and other data. A smart system is proposed for traditional and new digital participants in scientific and educational activities to design programs for compliance with antitrust legislation.
