Philipp Gmoser

Born in Austria, Philipp considers himself a true European living the motto “Home is where the heart is” – or more philosophically, he tries to live according to the mantra of the ancient Roman philosopher Seneca: “Non sum ulli angulo natus, patria mea totus hic mundus est.” After studying Political Science in Vienna, Stockholm and Munich, Philipp moved to Berlin where he currently contributes to gaining a better mutual understanding of financial and economic politics between Germany and Austria. In part due to his experiences while travelling throughout Europe, he is a strong supporter of the European idea.

Europe & Me’s mission is to "make Europe personal". Too many associate European news with dry politics and bureaucracy. We aim to change that. E&M is an online lifestyle magazine created by young Europeans for young Europeans. Since the publication of our first issue in July 2008, we have been writing about every possible "Europe" – the Europe of young master's students, the Europe of Chernobyl survivors, the Europe of the European Commission, the Europe of immigrants and the Europe of ex-pats.
