When can a theoretical study be called a "microscopic ab-initio calculation"? What are the essential ingredients of such a calculation? What can we study within an ab-initio framework? In this talk, I will try to answer these questions, and review some recent progress in ab-initio studies of few-nucleon systems, in particular light nuclei and scattering states with A up to 6. I will then present results obtained in selected applications, focusing on nuclear reactions of interest for astrophysics, and for the search of physics beyond the standard model.
