The bilateral relations between the Czech Republic and Austria have evolved according to the political, social and economic conditions of this European region. While the world wars and the socialist system in the former Czechoslovakia caused a greater separation between the two countries, the Velvet Revolution in the Czech Republic, the accession to the European Union and then the Schengen area led to a renewed convergence and integration of the countries. Cross-border cooperation is playing an increasingly important role in the regional development. The Cross-cultural Communication Network (CCCN) project, the results of which are summarised in this article, was aimed at mapping the current situation of the perception of intercultural differences. Understanding intercultural differences can strengthen competitiveness by improving communication and cooperation between Czech and Austrian firms.
