    ABSTRACT: Wink R. Transregional institutional learning in Europe: prerequisites, actors and limitations, Regional Studies. Transregional institutional learning has become a buzzword in European policy-making during the last decade. A theoretical concept about how to initiate, observe, and support transregional institutional learning, however, is still missing. The following paper provides a theoretical framework to explain preconditions for transregional institutional learning and investigates the potentials of three different channels for learning: multinational firms, benchmarking studies and projects, and interactive policy networks. The results show that there is not much proof for enthusiastic expectations on future learning processes, but options for European Union policies to enhance transregional learning effects.
