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 have close links with the industry charity, the Market Research Benevolent Association (MRBA).

Autumn Lunch 2019
Thursday 17th October 2019

Our Autumn Lunch will be held in the private dining rooms at Brasserie Blanc, Southbank. This is a very pleasant restaurant directly behind the Festival Hall, just a short walk from Waterloo Station. The elegant private dining area is at the side of the main restaurant. Three interconnecting rooms open up into a comfortable private bar where people can chat before the lunch and a spacious dining room where we will be served a 3-course set lunch. We look forward to seeing you there.
