The seminar will be focused on permanent magnets and the supply of the raw materials. The event will begin with the fundamentals of RE elements and magnetism, the principals of RE permanent magnets chemistry, thermodynamics, and constitution, as well as measurement techniques. This illustration of the process from mine to magnet and recycling is hoped to better enable the process’ increased sustainability.

The seminar will also highlight global sourcing and supply, the latest economic developments and global geopolitical considerations in magnetics markets and technologies, including possible future sources.

The 2nd MSIT Advanced School Seminar on Rare-Earth (RE) Materials & Magnet Technology is intended for business and technology managers and employees from various industries in the supply chains of industries of permanent magnet productions and application markets.

The following speakers are currently confirmed:

  • Dr Bernd Grieb (chairman) – PPM Materials GmbH
  • Prof Dr Dagmar Goll – Aalen University of Applied Sciences, Aalen, Germany
  • David Kennedy – HyProMag Ltd (Founding Director) and University of Birmingham (Honourary Research Fellow), Birmingham, UK
