MP Anna Romanova from the Samopomich parliamentary faction insists that Ukrainian universities must have real autonomy. There are many talks about this, but nothing is being done in reality.
“Half of the money that educational institutions get for leasing their premises goes to the “top”, and the institutions themselves are left almost with nothing. This results in the fact that educational institutions have no motivation to cooperate with business structures, to do research projects for them and to make education and science more applied,” says Romanova.
“We stand for systematic and comprehensive development of education for it to be autonomous and bring funds for higher education institutions.”
