I’m Angelika Niebler. I’ve studied law in Munich, Edinburgh and Geneva. I believe in a Europe of strong regions. I have worked as an MEP since 1999, representing Upper Bavaria, the area around Munich. We need a strong industrial base and a great deal of innovative research, both of which are very important in my region. I’m happy that Europe is stepping up research in the period 2014-2020. My other focus is on telecommunications and I’m glad that during this Parliament we got an attractive package for the consumers going especially for mobile communications abroad (roaming). Young people travel a lot and a cap on the mobile bill is good news.
