Galaxies are generally considered as the basic building blocks of the Universe. Besides stars, galaxies also contain a multi-phase interstellar medium that consists of molecules, atoms, ions, and dust grains. A global picture of the structure, formation, and evolution of galaxies requires observations of all these different components, and hence a multi-wavelength approach. We will describe some recent advancements of our understanding of nearby galaxies, based on multi-wavelength data from ultraviolet to radio wavelengths, combined with state-of-the-art numerical modelling.
