University of Brighton and Ricardo collaborate on engineering center

The UK Government has announced multi-million pound investments in University of Brighton research and building projects – including a significant project that will see an enhanced level of collaboration with Ricardo.

Ricardo has collaborated extensively with the University of Brighton since the 1990s on aspects of internal combustion engine research, including the use of laser-based measurement techniques, fundamental modeling and computational simulation. In 2006 the company and the University jointly opened the Sir Harry Ricardo Laboratories where much of this collaborative research has to date been carried out on a wide range of projects, including many involving Ricardo customers.

As a result of the new funding announcement, Ricardo will collaborate in the creation at the University of a new engineering Centre of Excellence. This will deliver leading automotive and environmental engineering research and will receive US$11.9m, with US$7.7m allotted for 2015-16.

"Ricardo is pleased to be collaborating with the University of Brighton on the new engineering research Centre of Excellence that has been announced today,” says Ricardo chief technology and innovation officer Professor Neville Jackson. “This new initiative builds upon the highly successful collaboration, of over 20 years standing, between Ricardo and the university on next-generation clean combustion technology and high fuel efficiency engine research."
