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

Summer Party 2020
Wednesday 8th July 2020

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Our next scheduled event is our Summer Party at Doggetts Coat & Badge. However, this will only be held if government guidelines at the time permit and if we are confident that we can make it a successful and safe event. 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 here when more information is available.

Confined to Barracks

Our colleagues at the AMSR suggested in a recent article on ‘Hoarders and Chuckers’ that if you unearth relevant material for the Archive during the lockdown, it could not be scanned until their ‘engine room’ at Ipsos MORI in Harrow was once again open for business. Since then, they have gone into a ‘lateral thinking’ mode.
