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 around 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 the Archive of Market and Social Research (AMSR), and have close links with the industry charity, the Market Research Benevolent Association (MRBA).

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We hope to be able to hold our Summer Party at Doggetts Coat & Badge as usual, but this will be dependent on advice at the time. Doggetts is a friendly riverside pub, with a splendid sunny terrace overlooking the river at the southern end of Blackfriars Bridge. Proceedings commence with a refreshing glass of Pimms followed by an informal buffet lunch. Our Summer Parties are a perfect opportunity to mingle and chat to friends and colleagues and we hope to see you there. Updates will be posted when more information is available.
