Conceição-Heldt has been appointed Chair of European and Global Governance and Reform Rector of the Bavarian School of Public Policy at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) starting July 1, 2016. Previously, she was Professor of International Politics at Technische Universität Dresden, Germany, and Deputy Director of its Center for International Studies. Her work focuses on the delegation of power to international organizations, accountability of international organizations, EU trade politics, negotiation analysis, and global economic governance.
