The aim of the article is to present how Public Private Partnership (PPP), a new collaboration between public and private sector, is implemented and is developed, in three European countries (Romania, France and United Kingdom). Although PPP is considered to be an important instrument for infrastructure development, hospital and school modernization, every country based on its legal framework and institution, developed a particular model of public-private partnership. Among the three countries there are different approaches regarding PPP, from many points of views: legislation, risks transfer, financing, methodology, type of built utility, national culture, duration, etc.
