While analogue models for gravity have so far provided some insights on the kinematical aspects of general relativity, the emergence of gravitational dynamics is still unclear. In this talk I will present two models which aim at filling this gap. In the first one a BEC model is considered, to uncover the gravitational dynamics hidden in these systems. In particular, the emergence of a modified Newtonian dynamics and of the cosmological constant will be discussed. A second model will be used to show how Nordstrom theory of gravity emerges from a system defined in Minkowski spacetime, showing how background independent theories of gravity could emerge from background dependent models.
