It reduces the possibility of absorption of innovation, access to new technologies, knowledge, financial resources and enables to tackle new instruments of material and human resources management. It is required, therefore, pro-active approach to the problem of co-operation understood as the joint implementation of objectives which is based on a common, collaborative action that reduces costs and increases efficiency. The success of joint ventures is nevertheless determined by many factors of different scope, impact of interaction and varying impact on mutual relations. The growing role of cooperation, especially in the context of cooperative product development, contributed to the formulation of the paper objective for which there was adopted identification of the critical success factors of joint ventures.
