Vitrocentre Romont sponsored by Swiss Government
The Vitrocentre in Romont, home to the Schweizerisches Forschungszentrum für Glasmalerei und Glaskunst (Swiss Research Centre for Glass-painting and Glass Art), will in future also be sponsored by the Swiss Federation, thereby confirming its status as a research institution of national importance. The Federation’s subsidies for the Vitrocentre for the financial years 2017–2020 will come to a total of 2,100,000 francs. These subsidies supplement the financial support given to the Vitrocentre by the city of Romont and Freiburg Canton, and are additional to its own resources and project funding. The yearly budget amounts to 1,500,000 francs.
