Abstract: We study the total lifts of curves by means of a submersion $\pi:M_s^3\rightarrow B_r^2$ that satisfy the condition $\Delta H=\lambda H$analyzing, in particular, the cases in which the submersion has totally geodesic fibres or integrable horizontal distribution. We also consider in detail the case $\lambda=0$ (biharmonic lifts). Moreover, we obtain a biharmonic lift in ${\mathbb R}^3$ by means of a Riemannian submersion that has non-constant mean curvature, getting so a counterexample to the Chen conjecture for ${\mathbb R}^3$ with a non-flat Riemannian metric.
