Asymptotically safe quantum gravity might provide a unified description of the fundamental dynamics of quantum gravity and matter. The realization of asymptotic safety, i.e., of scale symmetry at high energies, constraints the possible interactions and dynamics of a system. In this talk, I will first introduce the scenario of asymptotic safety for gravity with matter, and explain how it can be explored using functional methods. I will then emphasize, how the constraints on the microscopic dynamics of matter arising from quantum scale symmetry can turn into constraints on the gravitational dynamics, both by exploring the asymptotically safe fixed-point structure, and by exploring resulting infrared physics.
