Abstract / Description:Remarkable progress has been achieved in recent years in quantifying the molecular, atomic and dusty properties of the interstellar medium (ISM) and their relation to star formation in nearby galaxies. This is mainly thanks to a number of dedicated multi-wavelength surveys (infrared [Spitzer, Herschel], optical, UV [Galex], CO [Nobeyama, IRAM], HI [VLA]) that targeted a sample of nearby galaxies. Here we highlight some of the recent results emerging from these efforts and review our current understanding of the ISM properties, with a focus on the molecular gas phase, and its relation to star formation in nearby galaxies.
