The Community Program (TCP) is MRSI’s initiative to give back to the community by identifying small organisations working for a social cause at the grassroot level and partnering with them to make available to them world class research and insights to help them magnify their impact on the society.
The program aims at harnessing the ideas, skills and the energy of the young research professionals, coupling them with the resources of our member companies and channelling these to help solve the key questions/challenges being faced by the partner social organisations.
The program also helps in showcasing the depth and breadth of talent among the young professionals in the Market Research industry and also helping them to gain both personally and professionally.
Young research professionals (under 30 years of age) working with MRSI member companies can participate in this program and propose/pitch solutions for the challenges of the partner organisation identified by MRSI.
Young research professionals must choose one challenge among the ones shortlisted and respond to the brief with a written approach note detailing how they would address the needs and submit the same to MRSI.
MRSI will set up a team of senior industry professionals along with the representative of the partner organisations (the TCP panel) who will then evaluate the various applications and select a couple of applications that have the most promising submissions.
MRSI and our member companies would coordinate to provide resources to the researchers to implement the selected submissions. The researchers will need to complete the study in the stipulated time and make a presentation to the TCP panel.
The participating organisations will end up with actionable insights for them to carry forward their work to the community and the researchers will be felicitated at the MRSI's Annual Seminar.
The age of New Thinking!
