The article elaborates on conditions for SMEs in the EU and Poland as far as integrated EU business environment is concerned. It also focuses on the important role of the EU policy and integrated business environment on the cooperation strategies among SMEs. Although it was not the intention of the EU, the integration process favours Large-sized Enterprises in the run for market success. Yet, it does not mean that SMEs are on the lost position. Owing to the EU integration, value creation processes take place within transnational or interregional networks of suppliers, customers, competitors. Nowadays, more and more products offered on the worldwide market are becoming effects of complex systems. The analysis of detailed effects of that influence should be the subject of further research.
