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

Autumn Lunch
Tuesday 22nd October 2024

Our next event will be our Autumn Lunch at the Union Jack Club in Sandell Street, Waterloo. The club has recently been refurbished and the interior is very smart and light. Our lunch will be in the large, elegant Gascoigne Room on the lower ground floor. There is a comfortable bar on the ground floor and those attending events at the Club are treated as an honorary members for the day and can drink in the bar before and after the lunch, and even stay the night by prior arrangement. We are extremely grateful to Union Jack Club member Major Peter White MC, who is supporting our event.
