Universal Features in Turbulence: From Quantum to Cosmological Scales

In this article, we review how a condensate builds-up in finite time, by a self-similar blow-up of the solution of three different models of kinetic equations. After the blow-up time, the growth of the coherent phase is described by equations coupling the energy distribution for the normal gas and the condensate.
