Abstract

This article proposes a method to map and qualify the social insertion of Postgraduate Programs in CAPES’ Environmental Sciences area. The model was built based on the spatial integration of three key components: the socioeconomic vulnerability index (infrastructure, human capital, income and labor), the hemeroby index (land use and occupation), and the Postgraduate Programs’ geographic density. The solution uses map algebra to output the Geographic Highlights, which indexes ranging from 1 (low) to 10 (high). The validation of the model occurred with the 2017 quadrennial evaluation, when Geographic Highlights map supported CAPES consultants to qualitatively interpret the social insertion of Postgraduate Programs in the face of regional socioeconomic and environmental vulnerabilities. Other applications envisaged are: identification of priority areas for new courses, resource allocation (human and financial), encouraging the creation of collaborative networks, and, finally, analysis of former students’ professional insertion.
