    In addition to practicing law, Niebler has been a visiting lecturer on Intellectual / Industrial Property Rights (IPR) at the Munich University of Applied Sciences (HM) since August 2016.

    Early political career

  • since 1995: Member of the Upper Bavaria CSU district executive (since 2011 under the leadership of Ilse Aigner)
  • since 1999: Chairman of the Women's Union of Upper Bavaria district and member of the Land executive of the Women's Union in Bavaria
  • since 1999: Congress delegate and member of the executive, European People's Party
  • since 1996: Member of Ebersberg district council
  • Member of the European Parliament, 1999–present

    Since 1999, Niebler has been a Member of the European Parliament, where she has since served as the CDU/CSU Group parliamentary business manager in the EPP-ED Group at the European Parliament, and as member of the CDU/CSU Group and EPP-ED Group Executive.

    Niebler sits on the European Parliament's Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, and its Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality. She is a substitute for the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection and a member of the Delegation for relations with the Gulf States, including Yemen. In addition, she serves as a member of the European Parliament Intergroup on the Digital Agenda; the European Parliament's Sky and Space Intergroup (SSI); and the European Parliament Intergroup on Biodiversity, Countryside, Hunting and Recreational Fisheries.

    Between 2007 and 2009, Niebler served as chairwoman of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy; she was later replaced by Herbert Reul. In 2006, she was the author of the industry committee’s report on the seventh Framework Program for Research and Technological Development, totalling €50.5 billion. From 2010 to 2012, she led the European Parliament’s negotiations on overhauling European Union roaming regulations.

    In early 2014, the CSU chose Niebler to be the party list’s number 2 for the 2014 European elections, following Markus Ferber. She later replaced Ferber as leader of the CSU MEPs after the party’s poor showing in the elections.

    Role in national politics

    Ahead of the 2002 German federal election, Edmund Stoiber included Niebler in his shadow cabinet for the Christian Democrats’ campaign to unseat incumbent Gerhard Schröder as chancellor.

    Niebler later was a CSU delegate to the Federal Convention for the purpose of electing the President of Germany in 2004, 2009, 2010 and 2012. In 2015, Bavaria's Minister President Horst Seehofer nominated her as one of his deputies in the office of CSU chairman, making her part of the party’s leadership.
