He studied business informatics at the Saarland University.

He lives in Beggen and operates a digital communications consultancy together with a fellow member of the pirate party, Jerry Weyer.


In 2010 Sven Clement was elected, with three other candidates from the Pirate Party,[3] in the student parliament of the Saarland University.[4] The Pirate Party is also a part of the coalition, which elected the AStA of the university, so Clement is now responsible for transportation and University of the greater Region (UGR).[5]
