The Center for African Studies performs consulting work nationally and internationally, through direct contracts and through the participation of researchers in consulting projects managed by other entities. The Services Department has gradually come to specialize in the areas of Development, Education, Entrepreneurship and Health, also having held consultations in other areas. Among them, in this context, the consulting on United Nations services and structures, international development agencies, Portuguese and European government entities and, crucially, with governmental and non-governmental organizations in African countries. Given the multidisciplinary characteristics of the scientific and technical staff of the Center for African Studies, there are a number of specialized areas that have been developed for consultancy work. However, the call to social and economic analysis continues to be decisive in this area.
