The three public universities maintained by São Paulo State, Brazil have joined forces to develop new metrics for assessing performance and making international comparisons. They will establish a shared digital system that will be run by their indicator management offices. The system will be capable of more precise evaluation not only of performance but also of socioeconomic, cultural and environmental impacts.

The University of São Paulo (USP), the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) and São Paulo State University (UNESP) have agreed to implement interoperable performance metrics and to audit the indicators submitted to international ranking systems.

The initiative is supported by FAPESP via the project “Performance indicators in São Paulo State universities”, which is linked to the FAPESP Public Policy Research Program and has been renewed until 2022.
