Retail Industry Business Engagement Network

The ESRC Retail Industry Business Engagement Network (RIBEN) is a consortium which brings together four of the UK’s leading retail research groups at the Universities of Southampton, Oxford, Leeds and Surrey.

Together these groups have some of the strongest and most practical research relationships with the retail industry, plus long-standing records of research funding involving industry, ESRC, and various forms of collaborative industry/research council arrangements.

Working together within the structure of RIBEN, the four groups will seek to foster wider engagement of UK university-based social scientists with the retail industry, both directly, and also via acting as ‘hubs’ through which other (perhaps more isolated) researchers with retail and consumption interests can more effectively engage in knowledge production and transfer with the industry.
