Abstract: The continuous education of university professors gets new valences and supplementary elements of quality and innovation, if it is studied from the perspective of the university mission to initiate, organize, and launch seniors' education projects. In this study, using the method of comprehensive interviews, we analyzed the state of the art of the cooperation between universities and seniors education providers in Romania with the aim of identifying the best practices and suggesting new ways of approaching this field, unjustly ignored in education sciences literature. The conclusions highlight the fact that, although the educational infrastrucure may be available to seniors, consistent efforts must be done in the direction of stregthening the cooperation between seniors' education stakeholders, at both European and Romanian level.
