  • Mechanisms for dissemination, cooperation and exchange of best practices in leadership capacity development were introduced.
  • Effective application of change agents’ leadership capital was demonstrated, at the system level, within higher education sector, or at the institutional level via recognition of the status of a single university and improvement of its performance indicators.
  • Distinct understanding by universities of their role and responsibility under extended autonomy via revision of university strategies.
  • 34 partnership exchange visits between universities of Ukraine and UK took place.
