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).


Next Event

Network Evening Drinks (NED Talk)
Wednesday 19th August 2020

Our Network Evening Drinks (NED Talks) are a response to the COVID crisis and enforced cancellation of the Summer Party and Spring Lunch. The events are early evening Zoom meetings, with a speaker talking about a topic of general interest for 20–30 minutes, followed by time for discussion and a general chat. Our third speaker will be Nick Tanner, who will speak on the topic: ‘What happens to Jamie Oliver in translation?’
