The birth of NUCLIO resulted from the recognition, at the beginning of the 21st century, that there were no sources with quality scientific information in Portuguese, particularly in the fields of Astronomy and Astrophysics. Thus, we launched Portal do Astrónomo which having undergone several transformations remains alive and up to date.

NUCLIO has been carrying out science outreach activities among communities all over the country, participating in initiatives such as “Astronomy in the Summer” from Ciência Viva program and organizing lectures, workshops, observation sessions, exhibitions and much more. 

The actions organized in Cascais have the support of Cascais Municipality, through projects such as CELESTE, as well as several schools.

NUCLIO also takes scientific dissemination to many other parts of the world through actions carried out within the scope of the several projects we coordinate or of which we are partners.
