Abstract
Quantum corrections to the gravitational action generically include quadratic terms in the curvature. Moreover, these terms are distinguished with respect to other corrections in that their inclusion renders the theory renormalisable. The talk will discuss the changes their inclusion make to black hole solutions and the occurrence of other spherically symmetric solutions, such as wormholes and horizonless solutions.
