Description

We
present an effective theory for neutrino interactions with quarks, gluons and photons
that includes operators up to dimension 7. We perform a matching of these opera-
tors into nucleon operators in order to describe low energy processes as the recently
observed coherent scattering on nuclei. We compare the contribution of these new
interactions with the results from COHERENT and CHARM experiments to obtain
bounds on the new couplings both in the low and high energy regime. We finally
review different models that can give rise to such NonStandard Interactions.
