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).

NED Talk: Speaker: John Griffiths
Wednesday 20th March 2024

Our NED Talks are early evening Zoom meetings, with a speaker talking about a topic of general interest for 20–30 minutes, followed by time for discussion and a general chat. The speaker for our next NED Talk will be John Griffiths, who talk about 'How electronic music went into the box and is coming out of it'. John's interest in playing music began with acoustic guitar, but in recent years he has been reinventing himself as an electronic musician – working with synths and samplers and much of it in software form. John's talk will be a romp through the evolution of electronic music to the present day with examples of how it is being made and shared.
