* Note: We do not request +2000 CZK, we already have it due to more favorable exchange rate.


  • Currently we have sufficient number of participants and excellent media coverage so we can afford to spend less money to promiton materials.
  • Also we negotiated better rental prices for computer lab.
  • We request an extension of the project – and it also means more fundings for the project manager/lector/mentor.

Final account[edit]


IEG = 5850 EUR* 162311.24 ~6007.08 ~6665.76

*Note: Our original request was 160,000 CZK but we wanted that amount in euros to gain more favourable exchange rate. We received 5850 EUR (ca 160,000 CZK in spring 2014). Due to shift in Czech currency strength we finally had at our's disposal 162311.24 CZK (ca 6007.08 EUR or 6665.76 USD in winter 2016).
