To be acknowledged as a national and international research leader in astrophysics; to have a top-level astronomy education program, enhancing the insertion of its students in national and international institutions in this discipline, including general academic fields, the private sector, and areas where their education in physics, mathematics and high-level computing can be useful. In addition, our vision aims to keep a close contact with society through outreach programs aimed for a wider public, especially students from pre-school up to undergraduate levels.
