Yehor Stadnyi, Deputy Minister of Education and Science, paid a visit to Lviv Polytechnic to discuss with the heads of higher education institutions and teaching staff higher education reform and changes that are expected in the near future.
Such meetings, as Deputy Minister noted, take place in different cities to explain what changes the reform envisages.
The Deputy Minister of Education and Science stressed that no university will receive below 95% of funding in 2019, but that amount will not exceed 120% of this year’s funding. The rest of the funds will be distributed between universities according to six indicators, which can be divided into two groups: three – conditionally political indicators and three – quality indicators.
After the speech of the Deputy Minister, the attendees had the opportunity to hear answers to many other questions that interested them, focusing primarily on the needs and problems of those universities and those specialities which they represented. Most of the attention was paid to financial issues and opportunities to develop research and involve young people in science.
