Strong permanent magnets are essential, e.g. in future
transport, wind energy and water management applications. High
performance magnets require the use of rare earth elements, which
have been exposed to dramatically price variations the past years.
Therefore, there is a need to focus research on improving the
magnet production and recycling technologies with reduced
dependency of scarce elements, without compromising their
Magnets with better temperature characteristics, hard permanent
magnets with a high magnetisation and high coercivity must be
investigated. Also issues such as lifetime assessment and new
coating strategies have to be considered.
consortium addresses these aspects by a joint effort on
research, innovation and technology development.
