Our Team

Founder & President

Dominik Kirchdorfer

"I founded the EFF after I experienced both the great potential, and the many fractures between and within pro-European organisations. If we cannot unite civil society, how can we expect politicians to unite Europe?"

Dominik is a European writer and entrepreneur of Austrian and Polish descent. He studied Political Science at the University of Vienna and holds a postgraduate degree in EU Politics from the LSE and in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow. His passion is storytelling and he wants to do everything in his power to give the story of Europe a happy ending.

Dominik currently represents the EFF both in Austria and as its European President. He also serves as Managing Editor for Euro Babble and Italics Magazine.
