CAPES Reviews and Awards

CAPES Quadrennial Evaluation: Understand how it works!

Each Stricto Sensu graduate program must report annually on the activities carried out in the previous Base Year. This is the CAPES Collection. These assessments are closed every 4 years and are called Quadrennial Assessments. The concept of the programs is reassessed every four years.

CAPES 'four-year evaluation is being improved and in this next four-year period, which begins in 2021 and runs until 2024, CAPES will implement the Multidimensional Evaluation. This evaluation will analyze five dimensions of the Postgraduate Programs and is based on the European system for the evaluation of institutions, called U-Multirank. With this new methodology, it will be possible to measure other points such as the impact and relevance of the program for society, in addition to the innovation produced, internationalization and regional insertion.

See below the evaluations of our program over the past four years:

Quadrennium 2013-2016: concept 4
