The understanding of the low energy physics of 2D strongly correlated quantum systems is one of the main challenges in condensed matter physics. One of the reasons which makes such systems so rich (and difficult) is the presence of topological entanglement. In this talk, I will give an introduction to the field, pointing out some of the key ideas and main open problems.
