Högskoleverket (Swedish National Agency for Higher Education) invited higher education institutions to apply for the award of Centre of Excellence in Higher Education for the first time in 2007. This award is part of the new national quality assurance system.

The Swedish National Agency for Higher Education (Agency) received twenty-six applications from twelve higher education institutions. After an initial assessment, 9 applications went forward to a second assessment round that included detailed reviews and site visits.
