Black-hole driven processes in the Universe are now accepted to play a key role in the evolution – perhaps even formation – of galaxies, the cataclysmic death of massive stars and ultimately the production of gravitational waves and, perhaps, heavy elements. In this talk, I will present recent studies of stellar and supermassive black holes systems; I will show the ubiquity of fast outflows, the importance and role of magnetic fields and present prospects for future work in the era of real-time multi-messenger astronomy. Finally, I will touch on the promise of lab-based plasma experiments as analogues for understanding relativistic jets.
