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
Tuesday 5th July 2022

Our next event will be our Summer Party, which will be held at Doggetts Coat & Badge, at the southern end of Blackfriars Bridge. Our summer parties are a perfect opportunity to mingle and chat to friends and colleagues. Come and enjoy a refreshing glass of Pimms and an informal buffet lunch at this friendly riverside pub. And do bring a guest who might consider becoming a member to enjoy the day with you. The price will be the same for members and guests. We will be hoping for a repeat of the glorious weather we have enjoyed in previous years, so we can make the most of the sunny Thames-side terrace. Invitations will be sent out nearer the date.
