Recent progress in high field magnetism performed mainly in the Research Centre for Extreme Materials, Osaka University, is reported, with a short survey of the Centre's history. The main activities are in the fields of magnetism and superconductivity where a common keyword is highly correlated electron physics. A rich variety of effects such as metamagnetism, field-induced electronic transitions etc. is summarised. High field studies are also effective in the fields of atomic and molecular

New frontiers in high field technologies are discussed, including a highly sensitive magnetometer using the dynamical Faraday effect. * Refereed paper based on a plenary lecture given to the joint Sixth
