If managed well, alumni networks can become a strategic tool as enablers of opportunities. They promote collaboration on different levels. Networks give a chance to alumni to build and maintain lasting relationships with their peers. It also fosters a sense of belonging to the community and facilitates the flow of information with the Alma Mater.
These channels of information can disseminate internship opportunities for students and jobs for doctorate holders. Furthermore, they can provide valuable insights for doctoral staff. As there is no specialised network of marine sciences alumni, we propose to create one building on the synergies of the SEA-EU DOC project. All information about this platform will be transmitted through a dedicated channel.
