Effective Field Theories provide a framework to parametrise the effects of yet unseen heavy degrees of freedom in a model independent way. While in recent years the interest in higher-dimensional operators has increased, the construction of a complete and minimal set of operators is remarkably challenging. In this talk, I will report on $\texttt{AutoEFT}$, our implementation of a recently proposed group-theoretical algorithm that systematically accounts for the redundancies arising from equations of motion and integration-by-parts identities among the operators. $\texttt{AutoEFT}$ can be applied to phenomenologically relevant theories like the Standard Model or extensions of it, including new light particles and additional symmetry groups.
