The CIUHCT activities' reports compile all the bibliographic productions of the centre's members for each year, as well as conferences, workshops, and outreach initiatives. They addressed every year to the national Foundation for Science and Technology for review. All of these documents are in portuguese.


As an R&D unit funded by the Foundation for Science and Technology (Ministry of Science and Higher Learning), CIUHCT must report to a Permanent External Comission of Scientific Advisory (CEPAC, in portuguese) — see articles 6 and 14 regulating the Multi-annual Funding Program for R&D Units. The CEPAC is composed by scholars of distinguished merit, including foreign researchers, tasked with analysing the Unit's development, and for this reason they are advised to visit it anually, as well as submit a statement on its plan of activities, its annual scientific reports, and its budget, to be addressed to FCT. The CEPAC's composition is provided to FCT upon the submission of the centre's plan of activities and budget. 

The CEPAC's current members are the researchers Kostas Gravroglu (Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Athens), Antoni Roca-Rosell (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya), Antonio García-Belmar (Universidad de Alicante), e Marianne Klemun (Institut für Geschichte, Universität Wien). Their reports are available in PDF files that compile each member's statement (in english).
