Developing guidance on cross-border trade issues such as outsourcing and sub-contracting.

Promoting international standards
Promoting international ethical and quality standards.

“Hoping to help GRBN be the engine for a MR evolving transformation”Bruno Paro
I believe the GRBN is a very relevant initiative for nurturing and empower National Associations of the research industry worldwide, through exchange of experiences and collaborative multinational work. By fulfilling that objective, the GRBN would trigger a positive impact for our industry locally, regionally and globallyAlejandro Garnica Andrade

The GRBN is fantastic support and resource network for national associations and their members; and I am proud to be a part of its leadership team. If you have ideas on activities or resources you would like to see the GRBN provide (for national associations, individual researchers or research companies) please get in touch with me by email or through LinkedIn. The GRBN is a global research community network – we welcome your input.Elissa Molloy
Collaboration between associations on a global scale is important as it facilitates the sharing of information/resources and will save time, resources and effort – that’s where GRBN fits in and its initiatives will achieve this and will bring associations together. I’m passionate about the market research industry and I will utilise my experience and skills, and will invest time and energy, to help GRBN to flourish and achieve goals.Winifred Henderson
I want to assist the GRBN EMB achieve our important goals and to raise the profile of the Asia Pacific region as I know it is an important hub of innovation and growth on the world technology and research stage.Peter Harris

Since its launch in 2011, GRBN has made great progress bringing together the national research associations across the globe, sharing expertise and best practice to the mutual benefit of all 38 associations. GRBN needs to build on this initial success, strengthening its global brand, improving recognition of GRBN within research and the business sector, and expanding its programmes and initiatives – such as the Trust & Personal Data Survey – to develop and promote the business of research.Debrah Harding
In times of deep change it is more necessary than ever for the industry to converge to the long claimed ‘One industry, one voice’ vision for collaboration. I am pleased to work together with GRBN colleagues to contribute to the digital -mindset and technology- transformation.Enrique Domingo
