The primary aim of this research proposal is to study these instruments and any others that may still exist. The Cabinet of the Academy of Sciences is an unstudied collection which originated in the Palace of Necessidades and, therefore, it is important to explore its initial roots within the court. Methodology will combine i field visits with ii instrument study and iii archival research, and will be implemented in three main stages, organized in six closely articulated Tasks see Task descriptions. First , to complete the inventory of instruments to be studied, a systematic survey of the residences formerly occupied by the royal family will be conducted Task 1, 6 months.
A Bibliographic Contribution to the Study of Portuguese Africa (1965–1972)
Given that the dispersal of the royal collections may have been more extensive than presently known and given that important instruments have been found in secondary schools and museums, there is the real possibility that more as yet unidentified instruments exist outside palaces. However, in view of the sheer number of potential locations there are hundreds of secondary schools and museums , field visits will only be undertaken if sufficient evidence emerges during archival research.
To reduce time and costs, the survey of instruments in Brazil will be conducted simultaneously with the material study Task 4.
Instrument study will be guided by aspects related to materials, design and construction including date , function and history including use. Instruments identified so far constitute a heterogeneous collection, encompassing astronomical and navigation instruments, mathematical and physics instruments and chemistry glassware.
Typologically, there are i teaching instruments, similar to those found in many universities and schools, ii state-of-the-art instruments clearly intended for purposes close to what we would call research today; iii highly decorative instruments, most likely commissioned for display and ostentation, and iv royal gifts. The most important documental sources, as well as their present location, were identified during preliminary studies and archival research will be highly focused.
The research is centred on instruments, the majority of them acquired abroad through intermediaries, particularly ambassadors. Therefore, archival documents in which instruments could be mentioned, e. Verification of primary sources in Portuguese 18th and 19th century historiography is also crucial.
A substantial part of this will be carried out by the three scholarship holders S1, S2, S3. The core research team is highly qualified and motivated and consists of historians of science from the same research unit CIUHCT, with the exception of one researcher , with an international record of publications, and in workshops and conferences. The team is used to linking what is often unnecessarily separated in the history of science: documents and objects. The team has been working together closely in preliminary research into the royal collections since As for the PI ML , her research is focused on the history of scientific collections, particularly teaching and research collections.
Collections-based history of science is still unexplored terrain in Portugal. Trained human resources are scarce, being one of the reasons why Portuguese scientific heritage is presently vulnerable and at risk. This project aims to provide young researchers with fruitful opportunities for training, through contact with researchers in Portugal and abroad. The Museum of Science is committed to providing first class conditions and resources for research.
Short-term outcome will include a better understanding of the role instruments played in these cabinets and the role cabinets played in the broader development of Portuguese science, particularly in the 18th century.

Long-term results are expected to be multiple and this research, being exploratory in nature, will pave the way for further research into i the history of science in Portugal, particularly the scientific education of elites deliberate strategies, relations with major educational reforms , the transfer of scientific knowledge and instruments from major European centres to a small peripheral country such as Portugal and its former colonies, particularly Brazil; and ii the history of scientific collections in Portugal, particularly the impact of royal collections in matters of social taste, private collecting, hybridization of cabinets teaching artefacts and specimens, works of art, royal gifts of commercial or political nature and the formation of museums.
