    The continuous increase in export value at small and medium size enterprises undoubtedly proves their bigger competitiveness and mobilization in the search for new business partners. It is also indicated by the fact that export growth at the SME sector is larger than the growth rate of a number of small and medium-sized enterprises. It also means that the number of SMEs developing economic cooperation abroad is increasing. This is the result of previous investments, but also the inflow of new technologies and innovative solutions. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate the relationship between the activities of research and development (R&D), innovation and export activity at two different businesses profiles: trading and mixed-activity. The study presents the results of own research based on a questionnaire. Innovation of the entities and the countries which are the main recipient of exported innovation has been presented.
