In order to reduce the beam emittance by a large factor, the CLIC Collaboration has developed an innovative dipole magnet prototype and built a permanent magnet demonstrator. A spin-off of this design approach is being applied for the upgrade of the ELETTRA light source in order to reduce the horizontal emittance beyond the 210 pm proposed for the 2.4 GeV ring of the ELETTRA 2.0 study and financed by the I.FAST EU project. The manufacturing will be conducted by Kyma.
