We investigate a class of systems of partial differential equations with nonlinear cross-diffusion and nonlocal interactions, which are of interest in several contexts in social sciences, finance, biology, and real world applications. Assuming a uniform "coerciveness" assumption on the diffusion part, which allows to consider a large class of systems with degenerate cross-diffusion (i.e. of porous medium type) and relaxes sets of assumptions previously considered in the literature, we prove global-in-time existence of weak solutions by means of a semi-implicit version of the Jordan-Kinderlehrer-Otto scheme. Our approach allows to consider nonlocal interaction terms not necessarily yielding a formal gradient flow structure. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
