This document contains the slides to a presentation held at the 4th International Advisory Board, IPP. The presentation covered the following topics:

1. RF waves in fusion-oriented plasmas

2. A brief overview of IC, LH and EC wave properties

3. Present day status:
- Physics: heating, current drive, rotation;
- Technology: ITER developments.

4. Selected challenging issues:
- Propagation: full-wave description (IC, LH);
- Absorption: 3-D fast electron drift kinetic equation solver (LH, EC);
- Coupling (IC near antenna field modelling).

5. Conclusion and prospects.
