New Physics searches at the LHC are mostly being performed with the aim of 

detecting new states. A complementary strategy is to look for new interactions, something

that typically involves precise measurements. In this talk I argue how many of the current

SM (and BSM) measurements in the top sector could be used to efficiently and consistently 

determine of the couplings of an effective field theory and in particular that of

the SM at dimension 6.
