    Often the cooperation behavior of enterprises is described as a rational, conscious, and planned process. If so, a model should be able to identify distinguishing features that have a significant impact on the propensity for inter-firm cooperation. The proposed model analyzes the influence of the firm’s, the entrepreneur’s, and the industry-specific characteristics on the cooperation behavior via a single model that can be used to explain different kinds of cooperation. In thiscontext, the model utilizes five year panel data to identify significant differences with regard to the place of cooperation and the origin of cooperation partners.
