Abstract

The present paper makes an evaluation of the performances of the Brazilian Universities in the “U-Multirank”, in the range from 2017 to 2020. The “U-Multirank” is a multidimensional academic ranking created in Europe, presenting results since 2014. It gives a new multidimensional approach that has the goal of showing the weakness and strengths of each University, using five Dimensions. In this way, it does not classify Institutions in a single ranking. This model is very important in Brazil nowadays, because it is the model that Capes is using to prepare the new evaluation of the post-graduate system in Brazil. Of course there will be adaptations, but a general study of this ranking is important to give an idea of its future use. Only 20 Brazilian Universities are listed in this ranking in 2020. It is a small number, but it is significant in regional terms, since South America has only 35 Universities listed.
