Abstract: The aim of these lectures is to give an introduction to several topics whichlie at the intersection of string theory, gravity theory and gravityphenomenology. One successively reviews: i the -membrane- approach to thedissipative dynamics of classical black holes, ii the current experimentaltests of gravity, and their theoretical interpretation, iii some aspects ofthe string-inspired phenomenology of the gravitational sector, and iv somepossibilities for observing string-related signals in cosmology including adiscussion of gravitational wave signals from cosmic superstrings.
