Straumann maintains a unique collaboration with the International Team for Implantology (ITI). As the largest international, independent academic organization in the field of implant dentistry, the ITI plays an important role in the dissemination of knowledge related to the field. The focus of the ITI’s activities today is primarily on education. It also provides research funding and has invested more than CHF 36 million in projects since 1988, CHF 2.5 million of which was allocated in 2012.
In 2012, the ITI continued to grow very strongly as its membership rose from almost 11 000 to more than 14 000.
