    Abstract Trobbiani provides a concise overview of regional lobbying vis-à-vis EU institutions, analysing the nature of regional interest in Brussels, its organizational modes and channels of expression. Based on a brief assessment of the rationale and evolution of the phenomenon, the author focuses on recent developments, underlining two interrelated aspects: first, the double, complementary, nature of regions as public authorities as well as intermediaries and coordinators for economic, social and cultural actors based in their territory and second, the fundamentally cooperative nature of regional lobbying which, through an increasing use of thematic and policy-oriented networks, creates inclusive alliances and progressively learns to play by the same rules of broad civil society actors—providing specialized knowledge in exchange for inclusion in the policy-making process.
