What are the main opportunities and barriers to Czech-Polish (cross-border) business cooperation? Do European funds help develop this cooperation? In this project, we examined the practical aspects of the development of the Czech-Polish business environment.

The objective of the project is to identify significant economic aspects of Czech-Polish cross-border cooperation for small and medium enterprises and define new opportunities and threats of this cooperation. In this project, we investigated the influence of finances from EU funds on these enterprises and identified whether and how these finances impact on Czech-Polish cross-border cooperation.
