4.3.2 Justification of the list and size of indicators from the formula for the distribution of budget funds

The third requirement is only partially fulfilled, as this indicator takes into account the assessment of a certain HEI by external stakeholders due to the size of business agreements for the implementation of scientific and design developments. However, this indicator does not fully take into account the assessment of HEI by the world expert community. Funding is taken into account only within the «Horizon Europe» program, which is treated as scientific.

Of course, this is not in the interests of Ukraine, as attracting foreign investment in the framework of international cooperation to finance the activities of the HEI is objectively aimed at improving the quality of higher education and saves the general fund budget. Moreover, international programs such as ERASMUS+ and AUF (Agence universitairedela francophonie) fund only those projects that have been very meticulously selected. Thus, the HEIs that have received funding, of course, have authority in the international scientific and educational community. It is impossible to imagine that these programs would finance low-level HEIs in terms of the development of scientific and pedagogical staff.

Typically, projects funded under these programs are scientific and technological in nature and aimed at improving the quality of higher education. The fact that they do not belong to the current classification of scientific developments, in fact, can not be a reason to ignore them when evaluating the achievements of a particular HEI, in terms of saving the general fund of the budget for higher education. Moreover, ignoring the importance for HEI and the state in general of receiving funding under these programs really demotivates RTS, as it devalues their significant intellectual and creative efforts spent in the preparation of relevant projects.

Thus, the decision to take into account this funding when determining the size of the indicator of the level of scientific activity of a higher education institution will be more reasonable Sci.

However, this indicator can in no way take into account the assessment of a particular HEI by customers of educational services! Whereas such an assessment is very important for the state. Successful HEIs need to be financed from the general fund of the state budget, those that are able to provide co-financing of their development at the expense of their own special fund! World practice shows that investing in projects that do not have co-financing from the stakeholder is usually not effective! Research on the materials of 2019 showed [18] that the management of not all HEIs directs its special fund for development. The state’s investment from the general fund of the budget of such HEIs will only stimulate the maintenance mood and will not ensure their development.
