 Thesaurus of Scientific Instruments in Portuguese Language

In 2006, 12 museums from Portugal and Brazil formed an international network to produce a 'Thesaurus of Scientific Instruments in Portuguese'. This research project will enable all museums from Portuguese-speaking countries to controle and normalise scientific instrument terminology. This important and pioneer tool will be delivered in 2011. The project, coordinated by the MAST (Rio de Janeiro) and the MCUL (Lisbon), is supported by FCT from Portugal and CNPq from Brazil.
