The European Classification of Higher Education Institutions

Interesting project to classify HEIs into a European Classification. Obviously we have the league tables already, which I have already commented on https://headviser.wordpress.com/2009/07/27/explore-higher-education-and-see-the-world/ but this is different as it focused on institutional diversity. Worth looking to see the dimensions that they are using and even those this is a work in progress, (no actual universities are named just yet), it is perhaps signs of things to come when you can compare universities as you compare cars or contents of food. (I do realise that this is contentious and a simplistic view, but this seems to be the way that we are heading so it is well to be aware of such ideas). Keep an eye on http://www.u-map.eu/ for the future.
