Are you an innovator in the research industry? Do you have groundbreaking insights or fresh perspectives to share? MRS &more invites you to contribute, and showcase your work among the brightest young minds in research.

2024 marks the sixth &more Annual Conference, the only MRS Conference by and for young and new researchers. This unique event provides a platform for young professionals under the age of 30 to present their research, exchange ideas, and network with peers and industry leaders. It also provides an opportunity for seniors in the industry to share learnings and experience that is relevant to the next generation of researchers.

For this year’s conference, we’re encouraging you to submit case studies on innovative methodologies, as well as sessions that would be relevant to all young researchers – from newcomers to the wonderful world of research, to those who have reached manager level and beyond.

As ever, the remit is broad and we welcome submissions on a wide range of topics.

Your submission could be:

  • CASE STUDY (30mins)– present research from the last year where innovative methodologies have been used, outcomes have been notable, and the audience will be left excited by your story.
  • NO SLIDES PANEL SESSIONS (30mins) - suggest a strategic or methodological panel discussion.
  • SHOWCASE (30mins) - share your tips on career development for young researchers, or how the industry can be shaped by young researchers in the future.
  • IN CONVERSATION WITH… (30minsAn interview style session where an agency and client discuss an innovative approach to their research.

A quick note on our selection criteria

We are open to receiving submissions from everybody – not just &more members, and you do not need to meet the &more criteria. The audience will however be &more members (anyone who is under 30 or has been in the industry for less than 5 years).

With a limited number of sessions available, we give priority to &more members/young researchers, new hot-off-the-press research and projects using pioneering research techniques.

Please submit a brief synopsis (approx. 200 words) for consideration, by Monday 15th July 2024, to

The conference will take place online on Wednesday 9th October.

Join us in shaping the future of market research. We look forward to your contributions!
