I participated in a workshop on this topic at the Perimeter Institute. I am a bit of an outsider as I have used the effective field theory treatment to criticize naive applications of running gravitational couplings. The connection of a field like that of Asymptotic Safety to real Loretzian effective field theory is something that needs a better understanding, and I now have a collaboration working on some progress in this area.
The talks at the workshop can be found here.
Besides the science, they produced the best conference photo ever.
