Accordingly the research tasks are: to cover all the basic theoretical aspects that are related to the social capital; inspect more in details different approaches to define social capital, social capital characteristics, comprising elements, social capital types; investigation of enterprise related social capital as the background for relationships among enterprises, including challenges and problems connected with the social capital measurement.
