Founded in 2002, the Research Network is an association of market and social researchers who have spent all or most of their working lives in these or related activities.
Most of our 250 members have been associated with research for a good 25 years and one or two for over 60 years. Many are working full- or part-time in agencies, in corporate or academic roles, or as consultants, whilst others are now retired.
The Network enables members to keep in regular contact with friends and colleagues in the industry via a range of social activities, a regular Newsletter and online initiatives.
In addition to our social role, we also aim to ensure that the voice of experienced researchers is heard whenever market or social research issues are discussed. We have close links with the Market Research Society (MRS) but current or former MRS membership is not a condition of membership of the Research Network.
We support and are closely associated with the Market Research Benevolent Association (MRBA) and offer mutual support, utilising the resources of the MRBA where appropriate. For more details see
