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).

For our next NED Talk our speaker will be Graham Woodham, who will give a talk entitled: '33 Years of a parallel French life'. Graham describes his talk as: The story of our slow renovation of a farmhouse surrounded by vines, our warm and long-term friendship with our wine and cognac making neighbours, and the many fun and quirky aspects of a rural lifestyle in Bordeaux.
