At Current Forward, we're always conducting research and constantly need people to talk to and learn from.

That's why we created the Current Forward Research Network — so that we can quickly connect with people like you when we're looking to learn more about topics like health and wellness, snack foods or beer and liquor (and more!). Check out how it works below or jump to FAQ.

Why should I join?

You give us your opinions and have fun while doing it. You get gifts. We learn a lot. Simple as that.

What happens when I sign up?

Your data goes into our secure database. When we have a research study you might be eligible for, we’ll contact you with a pre-screener survey to triple check the study is right for you.

What kind of research will I be participating in?

We conduct many different types of research. For example, you might get contacted for an interview, to participate in a focus group, to trial a product and provide feedback, to fill out a journey or diary about a specific topic, or to take a survey.

What are my responsibilities as a research participant?

Keep it real, keep it honest. Show up on time if you commit to participating in a study. Give us 24 hour notice if you have to cancel or reschedule for any reason. Have fun and share whatever comes to mind!

When and how do I get paid?

If you fill out the pre-screener survey, get selected to participate in the research, and complete the research, you’ll be provided with a thank you gift within one week of study completion. You will not get compensated for completing the pre-screener survey but we promise to keep those as short as possible.

What will you do with my data?

All personal information is kept strictly confidential. Never, under any circumstances, will we sell your data to a third party. The opinions you share during research will be provided to our clients, with your permission.
