MSIT Winter School

MSIT Winter Schools comprise lectures given by the MSIT members and invited experts on Phase diagrams, Classical and Computational Thermodynamics, and Crystallography and related applicational topics.

Seminar on Rare-Earth Materials & Magnet Technology

  22 - 23 November 2023

  Stuttgart, Germany, Hotel Pullman Fontana

   organised by:


MSI, Materials Science International Services GmbH, Germany
ppm materials GmbH, Kirchheim / Teck, Germany

Organising committee:

Dr. Bernd Grieb (chairman), Dr. Svitlana Iljenko



The 2nd MSIT Advanced School Seminar on Rare-Earth (RE) Materials & Magnet Technology is a unique opportunity for professionals in management and technology to learn about the complete supply chain of magnetic materials: Resources of RE ores, mining, concentration, separating and transforming to RE oxides and metals, alloying to magnet powders and processing to all types of magnets.

We show global sourcing and supply, latest economic developments and global geopolitical aspects in magnetics markets and technologies. We explain the materials science behind the properties, technology and applications.


The seminar will be focused on permanent magnets and the supply of the raw materials. We will start with fundamentals of the RE elements and magnetism, the principals of RE permanent magnets chemistry, thermodynamics, and constitution, same as measurement techniques.  Showing the processes from mine to magnet and recycling is the approach to close the circle for sustainability and environmental protection of Earth. Applications and the future of global markets will be shown, as well as new opportunities of global sourcing.

Everything about Magnets, Everywhere and All at Once!See the programme.


The event 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. 
For example:
  Business managers,
  Research staff and research leaders,
  Materials specialists,
  Material manufacturer,
  Production managers,
  Application specialists,
  Sales managers and staff,
  Purchasing managers and staff,
  Quality managers,
  All magnet users, etc.

Our aim is to help improving communication between material manufacturers, magnet producers, design engineers and customers.


We are delighted to announce many of the world's best experts in magnet production and materials science as lecturers at the Advanced School "Seminar on Rare-Earth Materials and Magnet Technology.


Conference language is English.


Following the huge success of the MSIT Winter Schools, which focus on the basics of materials chemistry and computational thermodynamics, MSI and MSIT® started a new series of advanced training events. The aim of 'The MSIT Advanced Schools' is to take an important topic, or two closely related topics, in materials science and give training to a much higher level than is offered at our annual Winter School. The 'MSIT Advanced Schools' are aimed at materials scientists who may be already familiar with the subject but are looking for a deeper understanding. The lectures and 'hands-on' training are conducted by MSIT® members, and where required, external experts are invited to augment the team so that the School participants can be assured that they will receive the best possible training.
