The purpose of the European Magnetism Association (EMA) is to promote the development of magnetism and magnetic materials in Europe, through rising the visibility and the impact of research on fundamental and applied magnetism. EMA acts as an umbrella organization for activities in magnetism in Europe, giving magnetism a strong voice in the concert of physical sciences.
EMA addresses various purposes:
Key actions of the European Magnetism Association include:
The European School of Magnetism (ESM) and the Joint European Magnetic Symposia (JEMS) are two long-standing major events in the European community of magnetism. In 2010 the International Advisory Committee of JEMS and the Scientific Advisory Committee of ESM decided that the two events should be closely linked, as both were being organized in a similar collaborative spirit, with a view to sustaining the European activity in Magnetism. The second decision was to create a unique gateway to both events, which is the present Magnetism.eu, after being progressively extended to host an agenda of events in the field of magnetism, a service for posting and searching for positions in the field of magnetism, and serve as a basis for issuing a monthly newsletter. The European Magnetism Association was officially founded during JEMS2016 (see 2016 flyer), to act as a legal entity to encompass this set of actions.
