OU project funded by SPRINT

The Scotch Whisky Research Institute (SWRI) has signed up to the national SPRINT programme to access funded expertise and technology in the Space Instrumentation Discipline at The Open University (OU). This will enable the SWRI to evaluate innovative gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GCMS) techniques to enhance its authentication capabilities, to more accurately detect counterfeit products and protect one of the UK’s largest export sectors, worth £4.7bn/year to the UK economy.
