Ricardo Knowledge

Ricardo Knowledge

Keeping up to date with industry developments in a timely and efficient manner is becoming increasingly difficult. When faced with an overload of information from the internet and social media channels, identifying pertinent and reliable data can be a real challenge. Many online sources simply repeat press releases without providing the level of informed scrutiny and insight required for decision-makers to appropriately react.

Ricardo Knowledge is a group of services that exist to enable our clients to gain the new knowledge they need in a fast, accessible way. Whether your team requires insight into a specific technical issue, needs to train staff to develop new skills, or simply wants to stay ahead of developments in a particular technology or market sector, Ricardo Knowledge can help.

These services are delivered by the experienced consultants of the Ricardo Strategic Consulting (RSC) team, building upon the world-leading technical capabilities of the wider Ricardo group. Our client list includes global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), suppliers, and fuel and lubricant companies.

Knowledge Agreements

A Ricardo Knowledge Agreement is a gateway for our clients to access the combined expertise of the Ricardo organization on an ongoing, flexible basis. Operating as an annual contract, our clients can request support as required throughout the year, liaising with their dedicated account manager as needs arise.

So whether your company has a technical enquiry or a strategic or market related question, or wishes to access a training course or an Information Services product, this can all be captured under one flexible agreement.


Our training courses are developed in conjunction with, and delivered by, our world-class technical specialists.

We offer a suite of training products to suit different learning styles and needs, including eLearning and one- to two-day seminars. We can also develop bespoke courses for your company’s exact needs.

Information Services

The team at RSC includes several professional Information Specialists who manage the Ricardo Knowledge hub, delivering insight to internal and external clients. Our collection of library material is amongst the most comprehensive in the industry, built up over more than 30 years and continually growing on a daily basis.

This material underpins our Information Services products, including Powerlink, a searchable on-line database of vehicle and powertrain material, and EMLEG, our global emissions legislation database, as well as a selection of topical news bulletins.
