In this chapter we focus on the process that has led to the first version of the European classification of higher education institutions. We first describe in general terms the steps and considerations that are the crucial elements of the underlying design process. In the second part we describe the actual process of building the first version of the European classification of higher education institutions and the various research activities performed during that process.
