    The Liège intranuclear cascade (INCL) model is shortly presented. The predictive power of its standard version concerning the description of nucleon-induced spallation reactions in the 200 MeV to 2 GeV range of incident energy is indicated. Current improvements of the model, in particular its extension to higher energies, are emphasized. The capabilities of the model for possible applications in astrophysics, space research and protontherapy are pointed out.
