The article is the result of research on postgraduate studies in Brazil from its institutionalization to the National Postgraduate Degree Plan (2011-2020). The objective is to historicize the postgraduate plans, above all, the questions formulated in the PNPG (2011-2020) and their subsequent recommendations in the 2016, 2018 and 2020 reports. The goals and objectives proposed in the PNPG dictate the pace and define the paths that the nation intends for the future, related to the research that will be developed in postgraduate studies. In this context, it is emphasized that areas are emphasized as priorities, sources of financing are defined and forms of evaluation are implemented. The reflection on the PNPGs allows, in addition to understanding the political situation, to train and organize postgraduate programs so that they have an impact on research without losing their identity and commitment to the region they are located in. It is an exploratory research of an analytical nature and with documentary data collection. The methodology used for investigation was historical-critical. According to the research, it can be said that the PNPGs are interconnected with the context that were generated and reveal the nation project neglected by (not) government overnment, in addition to stipulating as a goal the consolidation of research at the same levels of global competitiveness, with an emphasis on high-impact investigations for the capitalist market.
