Research grants - About
The ITI provides funding for research projects in the field of implant dentistry and related areas that the ITI Research Committee has judged deserving of support. Part of the ITI’s annual research budget is allocated to applications whose projects deal with specific areas of interest defined by the ITI Research Committee.
The deadlines for ITI Research Grant applications are February 27 and August 31.
Currently the ITI research application portal is closed until End of June 2022.

How you will hear from us
- After submitting your application, you will receive an automatically generated email confirming receipt of your application
- Within 2-3 weeks you will be informed if your application has been accepted for evaluation by the ITI Research Committee based on its compliance with the ITI Terms & Conditions and ITI Research Grant Application Guidelines
- The decisions of the ITI Research Committee are communicated to the applicant in May/June for the February deadline and Nov/December for the August deadline
The First Applicant is the primary contact for all correspondence.
- Grants are only awarded to applicants who are affiliated with an academic institution. Independent applicants are requested to get in touch with ITI Headquarters before submitting their application.
- Once a grant has been awarded, the First Applicant is barred from making any further grant application for a period of three years.
- First applicants are restricted to one application per application deadline.
- Once a grant has been awarded, no additional funding will be awarded to the grant recipient for the same study at a later point in time.
- Research proposals that comprise two or more consecutive, interdependent work packages (e.g., a laboratory study followed by an animal study) cannot be funded if the second experiment (i.e., the animal study) can only be designed based on the results of the first experiment (i.e., the laboratory study).
Application review process
The following criteria apply when reviewing the applications:
- Relevance to current clinical issues in implant dentistry
- Originality of the hypothesis
- Suitability of methodology proposed
- Experience of the applying researchers/academic affiliation and research conditions/environment
- Transparent and realistically formulated budget
The ITI aims for a responsible and restricted use of animal models and expects a clear argumentation from the researcher. While the ITI recognizes that animal studies are a critical component of the Research&Development process, especially in the medical device realm, we ensure that we support animal models within these studies when necessary, for the logical continuation of a scientific project.
Possible outcomes of your application
- Acceptance of the project as submitted
- Request for revision according to given criteria
a) Minor revision (no need for re-application)
b) Major revision and re-application by the next application deadline
- Rejection of the project
The Research Committee does not provide any reasons for not awarding a grant to any particular project. ITI Headquarters staff are also bound by this rule and will therefore not give any information on the reasons why an application is rejected.
Research grants - Priority research areas
A portion of the annual ITI research funds is allocated to applications in specific areas of interest defined by the ITI Research Committee. Applications are also welcome for research into implant-dentistry-related areas that do not fall within the four priority research topics.
- Best practice treatment protocols and workflows
- Innovative regenerative strategies/Personalized medicine
- Peri-implant health and disease
- Big data and PROMs in implant dentistry
