The provision of advanced training is also at the core of IA, with the support
of teaching and research at undergraduate and postgraduate level in Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Sciences
related degrees, in particular at the Universities of Lisbon and Porto, where such degrees have more solid
backing. The Doctoral networks PhD::SPACE and DAEPHYS, recently funded by the Foundation for Science and
Technology (FCT), are examples of the commitment of IA in this area.
