Akademický klub

“The Academic Club, now AK VŠE, is mainly visited by academic staff and we are therefore pleased to have been able to participate in the project. Although it was a short pilot as part of Innovation Week, we were able to enter payments using our POS system and the money always arrived in the account according to the corrents spent. We would be happy to participate in another project in the future.”


“The Deštník restaurant is popular among students, academic staff and visitors from outside the University of Economics. We are delighted to have been able to take part in this pilot of the Corrency project as part of Innovation Week, it has brought us a turnaround from both students and academic staff. Payments were straightforward and we always received money in our account according to the number of corrents spent. We are happy to participate on the next occasion of the project.”

word from the director

“At a time of rapid technological development and consolidation of public finances, innovative public-private cooperation projects should not be forgotten. I am therefore glad that the students of the University of Economics and Science were able to experience Corrency as a transaction system with high potential for the development of local economies and communities.”
