Mectron s.p.a., inventor and producer of PIEZOSURGERY, the revolutionizing piezoelectric bone surgery unit, and the International Team for Implantology (ITI), a leading academic organization dedicated to the promotion of evidence-based education and research in the field of implant dentistry, announced that they have signed a long-term sponsorship agreement.

As the first sponsorship partner in a new initiative launched by the ITI to establish longer-term relationships with a small number of companies from the industry, Mectron will be working more closely with the ITI for an initial period of three years. The agreement encompasses primarily ITI congresses and symposia as well as the contribution of educational material for the ITI community in its area of expertise. Mectron is now one of a select group of companies known as industry partners of the ITI.

“This global ITI initiative is based on a modular sponsorship concept that allows us to meet the individual needs of our sponsors,” said Charlotte Stilwell, ITI President. “It represents a mutually beneficial, longer-term commitment made by carefully selected companies that share similar educational and scientific, evidence-based principles as the ITI. We are very happy to welcome Mectron on board.”
