This paper presents preliminary results of a study that aims to assess the role of universities in providing continuing education and training in Romania. The need for this assessment appears in the context of larger topic, that of lifelong learning, construct that raised con­siderable interest in Romania. The methodological design of the research consisted of a quantitative analysis of secondary data. For the purpose of this investigation, data were collected from the County Registries for Continuous Training from 10 counties belonging to all development regions of Romania, plus Bucharest. Findings reveal a low participation of universities from the investigated counties in the adult continuing education and training. The specialisations offered prove to be linked to the regional context, as it might seem natural. Further research is needed to clarify the link between the specialisations offered within the regional context.
