The depository app, which fulfils the need for a course exchange platform under IO2, is also used in the context of some of the ambitions of IO5. In the first place, it serves as a catalogue of courses that could be incorporated in a comprehensive curriculum on social security. Furthermore, the mandatory approval of submitted courses by the coordinator guarantees the uniformity of the courses and makes possible the screening of their academic quality. Besides ‘collecting’ material, this approach allows us the ‘select’ the courses that fit better into the planned curriculum and approach the relevant authors. Finally, the exchange initiative, which is facilitated by the depository app, could provide incentives for other academic institutions to join and submit their own courses. This enlarges the pool of courses available for implementation into the common curriculum.
