Abstract

Effective field
theory techniques allow reliable quantum calculations in general relativity at
low energy. After a review of these techniques, I will discuss the attempts to
define the gravitational corrections to running gauge couplings and to the
couplings of gravity itself. I will also describe an attempt to understand the
relation between the effective field theory and Asymptotic Safety in the region
where they overlap.
