 **IN-FET** (//Ionic Neuromodulation For Epilepsy Treatment//) is an ambitious Research and Innovation project, funded by the [[https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en|European Commission]] within its [[https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en/h2020-section/future-and-emerging-technologies|Future Emerging Technologies]] Horizon 2020's programme. It officially started in January 2020, with intense exchanges and kick-off initiatives by the members of its [[consortium]]: **SISSA**, **IBM Research Zurich**, **IUNET**, **Univ. of Geneva**, **Univ. of Sheffield**, and **Multichannel Systems GmBH**. **IN-FET** (//Ionic Neuromodulation For Epilepsy Treatment//) is an ambitious Research and Innovation project, funded by the [[https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en|European Commission]] within its [[https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en/h2020-section/future-and-emerging-technologies|Future Emerging Technologies]] Horizon 2020's programme.

 Throughout its trajectory, the IN-FET project will deliver for the first time a device that can **physiologically modulate the neuronal membrane potential**, the synaptic release probability, and glutamatergic NMDA receptors activation by altering potassium, calcium, and magnesium ionic concentrations in a controlled and spatially- confined manner. High-resolution simultaneous probing of cell activity will be performed by Si-nanowire vertical transistors, penetrating the membranes and detecting the cell electrical activity at unprecedented spatial and temporal resolutions. In conclusion, IN-FET's multidisciplinary consortium brings together state-of-the-art electrochemistry, 3-d nanofabrication, nanoelectronics, and numerical simulations, and combines neuronal biophysics to device modeling.  Throughout its trajectory, the IN-FET project will deliver for the first time a device that can **physiologically modulate the neuronal membrane potential**, the synaptic release probability, and glutamatergic NMDA receptors activation by altering potassium, calcium, and magnesium ionic concentrations in a controlled and spatially- confined manner.
