The gradient-flow formulation of the energy–momentum tensor of QCD is extended to NNLO perturbation theory. This means that the Wilson coefficients which multiply the flowed operators in the corresponding expression for the regular energy–momentum tensor are calculated to this order. The result has been obtained by applying modern tools of regular perturbation theory, reducing the occurring two-loop integrals, which also include flow-time integrations, to a small set of master integrals which can be calculated analytically.
