The conclusion of Cooperation Agreement between Vadym Hetman Kyiv National Economic University and Cracow University of Economics in 2007 opened possibilities for interdepartmental and interfaculty cooperation between the two leading scientific and educational institutions of Ukraine and Poland. Jointly organized conferences, round tables, numerous joint publications created a fundamental background for diversification of scientific contacts between the Faculty of International Economy and Management (KNEU) and the Faculty of Economy and International Relations (Cracow University of Economics). The result of the abovementioned cooperation is the publication of the first fundamental joint monograph, which saw the world in Poland in 2009 under the title: “Konwergencja modelі ekonomіcznych Polska i Ukraіna / Redakcіja naukova Mіchal Gabrіel Woznіak, Vіktor Іvanovych Chuzhykov, Dmytro Grygorovych Lukіanenko. - Krakow: Fundacja Unіversytetu Ekonomіcznego w Krakowіe, 2009. - 716 s” and in Ukraine: “Convergence of economic models of Poland and Ukraine. monograph./ Ed. by D.G.Lukyanenko, V.I.
