The Astrotalks are a free lecture cycle, which takes place at the University of Coimbra during the school year. These are organized in order to disseminate the scientific culture related to astronomy and similar areas. The main goal is to let on and know to the student community, the Portuguese researchers and enthusiasts, or those who, at some point in their journey, have already come into contact with this reality and have a lot of knowledge and fascination with astronomy to share.

As a result of the current pandemic in which we find ourselves, the Astrotalks happens now digitaly, occurring at 9:00 pm on the second Friday of each month.
