About the RSG’s research survey

The RSG is launching an independent wide-scale research survey to harness your views.

Conducted by Savanta ComRes on behalf of the RSG, we believe the survey will provide valuable insights to steer our current and future work.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. The survey should be completed by key executives or decision makers in your organisation, noting the final deadline for completion is Monday 18 May at 17.00 hours.

Ideally, please complete the survey only once. You can access the survey by clicking the link here. In doing so, you will go to a page hosted by Savanta ComRes.
