Past Research Network events
Connecting Experienced Researchers

Welcome to the Research Network

The RESEARCH NETWORK is an association of experienced market and social researchers who have spent all or most of their working lives in such activities. We currently have nearly 250 members; most of them have been associated with the field for at least 25 years and some for a lot longer.

Our purpose is to help members stay in regular contact with friends and colleagues through a mix of social events, a regular newsletter and online facilities. We organise lunches and other get-togethers in London – lively and convivial events at which members have the opportunity to meet up with old acquaintances and make new friends.

We also support initiatives such as an oral history archive and have close links with the industry charity, the Market Research Benevolent Association (MRBA).

Wednesday 5th July 2017

BOOK NOW... for our Summer Party at Doggetts Coat & Badge, by Blackfriars Bridge. Come and join friends and colleagues for a glass of Pimms and an informal buffet lunch at this friendly riverside pub. We will be hoping for a repeat of the glorious weather we have enjoyed in the past two years, so we can make the most of the sunny Thames-side terrace.
