Description The article presents the first results of the applied research project on the topic called "Family businesses as a source of community development in the Czech Republic". The authors explain the vitality assessment model of family business. Subsequently, the structure of the knowledge-based system that allows self-assessment of family business vitality is described. The research on family business should not only explain how families behave and then infer the consequences. It is important to explain natural characteristics of family business within a broader area of a municipality and a region. In this context, we talk about the interaction of family business and the region, the socalled regional familiarness. This approach was also used in the creation of the knowledge-based system that draws on the authors´ own vitality assessment model of family business.
