Communications Officer


Moritz graduated from the University of Vienna (Austria) in Political Science and Arabic where he focused on the topics of digitalisation, migration, and European integration. During his studies, he worked at the United Nations Office at Vienna, explaining the UN’s history, goals, and specialised organisations to visitors, as well as conducting workshops on refugees, sustainability, and human rights. His employment at the UN in Vienna allowed Moritz to spend the summers from 2013-2016 in China to attend the UN Chinese Language Programme’s Summer School at Nanjing University.

After graduating, Moritz moved to Jordan for a communications internship at a grassroots organization for urban refugees in Amman. In mid-2019, the Viennese native moved back to Europe to take a job with DIGITAL SME in Brussels, where he will focus on internal and external communications, networking, and events. Next to his job at DIGITAL SME, Moritz volunteers as the Deputy-Director of Programmes at Young Professionals in Foreign Policy Brussels, where he focuses on politics & media and the UN System.

Besides his native German, Moritz is fluent in English, and almost fluent in Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, with very advanced Chinese and Arabic, and intermediate French and Turkish skills.
