The “Committed to Cancer Research” report was commissioned jointly by AECC (Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer), ASEICA (Asociación Española de Investigación sobre el Cáncer) and Fundación Bancaria “la Caixa” to understand the current status of cancer research in Spain, put into an international perspective.

The main result of this study was the identification of a clear way towards the drafting a national strategy for cancer research in Spain. It was possible to achieve such result by analysing the spanish cancer research ecosystem in depth, also thank to the dense, fine-grained data provided by UNiCS, which enabled to measure trends and topics in publications, research projects and clinical trials.
