Abstract

Modern physics rests on two basic frameworks, quantum theory and general relativity. Quantum gravity aims to unify these two frameworks into one consistent theory. One can expect that such a formulation delivers in particular a novel understanding of space and time as quantum objects.

I will give an introduction to some basic concepts in quantum gravity research and present possible models of quantum space time.
