Mission: Set up within the University Hospital Center (CHU) of Liège, the Arsène Burny Cancer Institute (IC) is the Integrated Oncology Center of the University of Liège (ULg), driven by the passion of the fight for life. Through awareness-raising and training activities, the IC stresses the paramount importance of prevention in the fight against cancer. Through a global and personalised approach to each patient, our multidisciplinary teams work tirelessly to save lives and improve the quality of life for thousands of people facing cancer. Unique in Wallonia, the ICR achieves these objectives through excellent care, innovative research and educational programmes dedicated to the fight against these diseases.
Vision: The Arsène Burny Cancer Institute is the university medical centre of reference for the fight against cancer in Wallonia, providing high-quality integrated care for cancer patients, offering valuable training to healthcare professionals and developing cutting-edge oncological research at the service of the patient. It must play its role as a leader in the fight against these diseases, in partnership with the region's other healthcare institutions.
The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.
We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
These are the journals used by the institution's researchers to publish their work in the last year. The size of each circle represents the value of the SJR of the publication, and its spatial position represents its subject matter.
This visualizatión allows you to identify the knowledge areas where the institution has published, recognize the prestige of the scientific journals in which the institution knowledge has been published, and identify predominant scientific communities.
