Three Scholarships Available for the Advancing Research Conference

The University of Georgia’s Market Research Institute International is to host, “How to Increase the Impact of Research Results,” a webinar by Jeffrey Hunter, previous senior director of General Mills; and Jeffrey Henning, executive director of MRII.

Rosenfeld Media is giving away three scholarships to researchers and students to attend the Advancing Research conference in New York City on March 30 and March 31. 

There are more researchers focused on users, customers, and products than ever before, and those researchers’ needs are changing. Rosenfeld Media has already interacted with researchers through the Advancing Research community, which we curate, but wanted to learn more about who they are, where they work, and how they learn. And—as a conference-production company—we wanted to know what researchers seek from conference experiences.

In human capital news, P-O Westerlund is appointed as CEO of Nepa AB.

Walnut Unlimited appoints Anniki Sommerville as Associate Director in its qualitative team. 

John Tan joins InnovateMR as the Chief Operating Officer.

Congrats to you all and well wishes from us at Happy Market Research! 

In jobs, YouTube’s UX Research Sciences team is looking to hire a UX Researcher based in San Bruno, California.
