TOPO-EUROPE addresses the 4-D topographic evolution of the orogens and intra-plate regions of Europe through a
multidisciplinary approach linking geology, geophysics, geodesy and geotechnology. TOPO-EUROPE integrates monitoring,
imaging, reconstruction and modelling of the interplay between processes controlling continental topography and related natural
hazards. Until now, research on neotectonics and related topography development of orogens and intra-plate regions has received
little attention. TOPO-EUROPE initiates a number of novel studies on the quantification of rates of vertical motions, related
tectonically controlled river evolution and land subsidence in carefully selected natural laboratories in Europe. From orogen
through platform to continental margin, these natural laboratories include the Alps/Carpathians–Pannonian Basin System, the West
and Central European Platform, the Apennines–Aegean–Anatolian region, the Iberian Peninsula, the Scandinavian Continental
Margin, the East-European Platform, and the Caucasus–Levant area. TOPO-EUROPE integrates European research facilities and
know-how essential to advance the understanding of the role of topography in Environmental Earth System Dynamics. The
principal objective of the network is twofold. Namely, to integrate national research programs into a common European network
and, furthermore, to integrate activities among TOPO-EUROPE institutes and participants. Key objectives are to provide an
interdisciplinary forum to share knowledge and information in the field of the neotectonic and topographic evolution of Europe, to promote and encourage multidisciplinary research on a truly European scale, to increase mobility of scientists and to train young
scientists. This paper provides an overview of the state-of-the-art of continental topography research, and of the challenges to
TOPO-EUROPE researchers in the targeted natural laboratories
