Abstract

HUBER P. (2003) On the determinants of cross-border cooperation of Austrian firms with Central and Eastern European partners, Reg. Studies 37, 947-955. We analyse cross-border cooperation of Austrian firms with CEEC partners. Firm size, previous experience with cooperation and depth of integration with the most important partner are more important determinants of cooperation than distance to the closest potential partner. Firms with experience of cooperation are more likely to enter business relationships and less likely not to cooperate. Small firms are unlikely to cooperate in incentive contracts, while firms which are part of production networks typically cooperate in business and ownership relationships. Distance to the closest potential partner increases the probability of not cooperating and reduces the probability of ownership relationships.HUBER P. (2003) A propos des de terminants de la cooperation transfrontaliere entre les entreprises autrichiennes et leurs partenaires des pays de l'Europe centrale et orientale, Reg. Studies 37, 947-955. Cet article cherche a analyser la cooperation transfrontaliere entre les entreprises autrichiennes et leurs partenaires des PECO. La taille de l' entreprise, l'experience prealable et le degre d'integration dans le principal partenaire sont plus importants comme determinants de la cooperation que ne l'est la distance au partenaire eventuel le plus proche. Les entreprises qui ont de l'experience prealable sont plus susceptibles d'entamer des relations d'affaires et sont moins susceptibles de ne pas cooperer. Il est peu probable que les petites entreprises cooperent pour passer des contrats avec primes de rendement, alors que les entreprises qui font partie integrante des reseaux de production cooperent comme d'habitude dans des relations d'affaires et de propriete. La distance au partenaire eventuel le plus proche augmente la probabilite d'un refus de cooperation et reduit la probabilite des relations de propriete.HUBER P (2003) Uber bestimmende Faktoren grenzuberschreitender Zusammenarbeit osterreichischer Firmen mit mittel-und osteuropaischen Partnern, Reg. Studies 37, 947-955. Die grenzuberschreitende Zusammenarbeit osterreichischer Firmen mit CEEC (mittel-und osteuropaischen) Partnern wird analysiert. Firmengrosse, fruhere Zusammenarbeit und Ausmass der Integration mit den bedeutendsten Partnern sind wichtigere Bestimmungsfaktoren als Entfernung zum nachsten potentiellen Partner. Firmen, die bereits Erfahrung mit Zusammenarbeit haben, sind eher geneigt, Geschaftsverbindungen einzugehen, und weniger, eine solche abzulehnen. Es ist unwahrscheinlich, dass kleine Firmen einer Mitarbeit in Anreizkontrakten zustimmen, wahrend Firmen, die bereits Teil eines Produktionsnetzwerks sind, typisch Geschafts-und Besitzverbindungen eingehen. Entfernung zum nachst gelegenen potentiellen Partner verringert die Wahrscheinlichkeit einer Zusammenarbeit, und reduziert die von Besitzverbindungen.
