IA is the most prominent research unit in the field of Astrophysics in Portugal, integrating researchers from the Universidade do Porto and the Universidade de Lisboa, and is responsible for a major fraction of the national productivity in international ISI journals in this area.

The research and development effort at the IA includes most of the topics at the forefront of research in Astrophysics and Space Sciences, complemented by work on instrumentation and systems with potential use in Astronomy and Astrophysics.

It is considered strategically important for IA to be optimally placed to contribute to the development and exploitation of large projects within the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), besides other international initiatives.
