[Ukraine] Science is at the heart of the reform process

Last summer, a new higher education law was finally passed. It was a true victory for the academic community, civil society and the revolution.

University World Newshas addressed the issues around the passing of the law many times. Work is currently focusing on the implementation of this law, which aims to give Ukrainian universities more academic, financial and organisational autonomy. But the reality is not straightforward (...) - University World News, by Serhiy Kvit,  20 March 2015 Issue No:359

Reform higher education’s old system of privileges

The last time Ukrainian cities faced occupation and artillery bombing was during World War II. That was until this spring, when Russia annexed Crimea and started to supply rebels who have occupied large cities in the East of Ukraine. This has changed everyday life for millions of Ukrainian citizens, among them thousands of school-leavers who want to enter university.

This year’s admissions campaign is the most difficult one since the very beginning of Ukrainian independence in 1991. The government has lost all possibilities of conducting external independent testing, or EIT, in Crimea and in major parts of the Donbas region.

UKRAINE: Home university rankings are a response to international isolation

Ukrainian universities do not take part in global rankings. The reason is quite simple – the paradoxical structure of universities, implemented by the Soviet government in the early 1920s, still holds sway: academic research takes place outside universities.

Research is formally conducted within the institutes of the National Academy of Sciences, while the university is reserved for teaching. (...) - University World News, by Serhiy Kvit, 11 November 2012, Issue No:247

Horizon 2020 deal brings Ukrainian science closer to Western bloc.

 

BRUSSELS—Ukraine has earned privileged access to competitive research funds from the European Union, bringing its science closer to the Western bloc. Under a deal signed in Kiev on 20 Marchwith the European Commission, Ukraine becomes an “associated country” to Horizon 2020, the European Union's €80 billion, 7-year research program. That means researchers and businesses in Ukraine may apply for any Horizon 2020 grant. (...) - Science, by Tania Rabesandratana, 24 March 2015

Showdown looms over future of science academy, universities.

 

In recent months, Serhiy Kvit, Ukraine’s education and science minister, has had the stressful task of overseeing the hurried relocation of 25 science-related institutions, including 11 universities, from separatist-controlled enclaves in eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk and Luhansk regions, or Donbas. The crisis, which began after Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula last March, has overshadowed ambitious attempts that Kvit is helping orchestrate to reform Ukraine’s higher education and science. The latest move on this front is a draft science law promising sweeping changes, including a new competitive grants body similar to the U.S. National Science Foundation, that’s expected to be introduced into parliament in March or April.

[Ukraine] From higher education legislation to implementation

[Ukraine] From higher education legislation to implementation | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

The lights turned green for Ukrainian universities two weeks ago – parliament adopted a new law, which is a starting point for fundamental change in the country’s higher education system.

University World News has repeatedly written about the major changes the law introduces. However, these fruitful results would not have arisen if it wasn’t for several years of struggle by a considerable number of people.

Therefore this is a success story that deserves to be told to the world. (...) - University World News, by Yegor Stadny, 11 July 2014 Issue No:328
