iEarth will facilitate a good contact network between academia and the employees to secure the relevance of studies, help candidates networking and discover what skills employees appreciates from newly educated students. This will be done by building a strong contact between students and academia after the students have finished their studies. Through developing active and open alumni-networks between the institutions and the markets where students are employed, this communication can be secured.
