Asymptotically safe gravity is one of the most conservative approaches to quantum gravity. It relies on the framework of quantum field theory and the Wilsonian renormalization group. Recently, questions and open issues have been discussed both within and outside its community. This week, instead of a seminar, we will have a debate between John Donoghue ("A Critique of the Asymptotic Safety Program", arXiv:1911.02967) and Roberto Percacci ("Critical reflections on asymptotically safe gravity", arXiv:2004.06810), who will critically discuss the status of the field, and highlight its strengths and challenges.
