The so called association-based systems are not new-fangled ideas; they have long been known in various economies. Nowadays network-forming is mentioned as a way of successful innovation, moreover, it is often assigned as a crucial condition of staying on the market. Although Hungarian journals have attempted to draw a picture of the benefits of networks for SMEs - as “appetisers” based on the examples of developed market economies - since the 1990s, the interest of Hungarian entrepreneurs has been rather meagre. However, this situation seems to be changing slightly. The indifference of SMEs, especially in the knowledge-based sectors has now been replaced by perceptible interest. This article – focusing on the latter circle of enterprises – seeks to answer the following questions: Ø What are the realisations and typical motives of the recent interest of SMEs in forming networks? Ø What are the main goals and advantages of forming networks for SMEs in Hungary? Ø What type of networks would be the most efficient for this circle (considering the characteristics of domestic enterprises)? Ø What are the most effective tools and solutions assisting SMEs in becoming acquainted with modern networks and joining them adequately?
