Accessing research

On joining the UCT Unilever Institute, members receive a library of all research projects released more than six months ago.

Research is not available for sale on an individual project basis.

New projects are released via presentations and roadshows countrywide. Tickets are available to the public and members are entitled to a discounted price. Subscribe to our mailing list to be notified when new projects are released.

Selected projects are not released publicly and are only available to members, e.g. our annual Landscape presentations, Branded and Marcom.

Some information is free - so sign up for our newsletter for regular research snippets
