Abstract: Scientific domains and the public sector increasingly open their data repositories. In June 2013, the G8 boosted the topic in a charter and the Open Government Partnership welcomed in April 2014 its 64th partner to make governments more open and accountable. The US and Australian governments together with the European Commission, complement this initiative of the public sector with the Research Data Alliance, to ease research data sharing and exchange. Although many objectives are shared, we see different interpretations and developments all over the globe. This chapter highlights central activities in the European context and anticipates possible developments. It explores the concept of a cross-domain open data ecosystem by (i) explaining the current situation; (ii) exploring innovative approaches and recent trends on information and communication technologies; and (iii) outlining potential pathways to couple public sector information and public-funded research data. The chapter concludes by summarizing practical implications and outlining directions for future research.
