Two aspects of asymptotic safety are highlighted. First, I discuss how asymptotic safety can be tested with the help of a bootstrap strategy. This is then applied to high-order polynomial actions of the Ricci scalar and beyond. Second, I discuss how phenomenological signatures of asymptotic safety can be searched for at particle colliders such as the LHC, provided that the quantum gravity scale is in the TeV energy regime.
