Experiments in neutrino physics cover a wide range—from deep inelastic scattering, over long base-line oscillation experiments and low-energy coherent neutrino–nucleus scattering (CEνNS), to searches for neutrinoless double β decay (0νββ)—yet in all cases a key aspect in interpreting the results concerns understanding neutrino–nucleus interactions. If the neutrino energy is sufficiently low, the required matrix elements can be constrained in a systematic way by the interplay of effective field theories, phenomenology, and lattice QCD. In these proceedings, we illustrate this strategy focusing on the CEνNS and 0νββ processes.
