CAUP participates in the scientific and technical development of Astronomical Instrumentation and dedicated observation Surveys, which transverses both major scientific areas in CAUP. The development of new instrumentations is important to secure privileged access to existing and future facilities of the European Organisation for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere (ESO) and of the European Space Agency (ESA). The participation of CAUP in large observation Surveys is also important to give direct acess to the available data in first hand. Both the involvement in instruments or in large Surveys contribute to the long term development of Astronomy in Portugal.
CAUP as an institution and several CAUP members have been involved in the scientific definition of astronomical instrumentation and several projects that are already running in collaboration with other Portuguese teams. Here it is listed the several projects divided into the sections of Space based projects and Ground Based projects.
