Recent progress in the understanding of non-equilibrium quantum dynamics of many-body systems will be discussed. Applications to electron systems and ultracold atoms will be considered. Examples include photo-induced Cooper pairing in superconductors, prethermalization in 1d condensates, mesonic resonances in the Fermi Hubbard model. Possible connections of these phenomena to other areas of physics will be pointed out.
