Abstract
Cosmic dust is omnipresent in the Universe. Its presence influences the evolution of the astronomical objects which in turn modify its physical and chemical properties. The nature of cosmic dust, its intimate coupling with its environment, constitute a rich field of research based on observations, modelling and experimental work. This review presents the observations of the different components of interstellar dust and discusses their evolution during the life cycle of the interstellar medium. Interstellar dust grains are found everywhere in the Universe: in the Solar System, around stars at all evolutionary stages, in interstellar clouds of all kind, in galaxie...
