Connect with a wide range of individuals and businesses

MRS holds a range of social events throughout the year where you’ll meet others who share your passions for practice and business. The research sector thrives on debate and interaction. MRS provides the perfect forum for those who want to strike new and profitable relationships.


Our Excellence Awards lunch in the summer, the Operations Awards in September and the black-tie MRS Awards, attended by over 800 people, each December provide excellent opportunities for entertaining clients and rewarding staff.


The Annual Conference Party in March and the Summer Party in July are two of the most gregarious nights in the UK research calendar!

Regional events

MRS regional networks are organised by researchers across the UK. Each hosts events that are relevant whatever your research focus. Explore new research practices, hear from innovators, debate the latest developments and make profitable connections with businesses in your area.
