The graduate programs in Brazil are evaluated by CAPES. UFRJ has 60% of all its courses graded 5, 6 and 7, the highest scores in CAPES. The UFRJ strongly believes in the creation of an intercultural environment not only as a way to foster academic links, but also to strengthen the friendship among people by encouraging the sense of respect for diversity in others. Following this path, the institution maintains cooperative relations with more than 170 international institutions worldwide. The UFRJ has also established partnerships with many national enterprises, some of which have facilities on the UFRJ campuses (i.e. Petrobrás). Moreover, the Science Park of Rio de Janeiro is in Cidade Universitária, which stimulates a closer exchange of knowledge between students, professors and enterprises. All these features consolidate the active role of the UFRJ in the development of science, technology and innovation as well as ratifies the institution’s commitment to a conception of a plural, modern and democratic university.
