Young Researchers Network

About the Young Researcher Network

Young Researchers Networks have been established in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia, providing those new to the market and social research industries with an opportunity to meet other researchers and to discuss issues of common concern and interest.

YRN events and activities are designed for those under 30 years of age, in the early stages of their market research career. These include both professional development events and networking opportunities for those new to the industry. Some of these events may also be of interest to the general Research Society membership.
