The last decades regional development processes initiated by European countries, have aimed at relaunching economic and social development, the economic recovery of low developed areas, discrepances reducing among the regions levels of development. Regional decentralization interacts with the economic growth, this relationship enabling to imagine national and regional competences of public authorities, resulting in institutional structures. Regionalization action that has taken place in Europe is the result of a series of events and activities that lead to regions establishment in a territory, the forms of regionalization in European states being in correspondence with political and administrative realities in the countries reffered to. The study presents the main variants of regionalization in the EU countries and their basic characteristics resulting from the degree of decentralization, the competences granted to regional powers, the institutions involved. There are also presented some considerations on how the regional systems have evolved and adapted in relation to their degree of autonomy, such as reflected in the recent experiences of some European countries.
