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 over 200 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).


Next Event

Autumn Lunch

BOOK NOW for our Autumn Lunch, which will be held at Azzurro Waterloo, a regular venue for the Research Network. Members who have visited Azzurro in previous years will remember this friendly Italian restaurant in a large railway arch between Waterloo Station and the South Bank. We will have drinks in the bar beforehand, a two-course buffet lunch in the restaurant and people can return to the bar if they wish to stay on after the event.
