Applied research activities help faculty members provide enriched learning experiences for their students and contribute to knowledge in their fields.
Research in the Classroom

Industry-driven applied research competitions and capstone projects can be integrated into curriculum.

Independent Research

Faculty-led research projects are supported by a variety of resources and internal funding opportunities.

Partner-Driven Research

Faculty members collaborate with industry and community partners to solve real problems.

Faculty Research at Humber

If you would like to start a research project, have a conversation with your Dean and ask her/him to sign the Project Approval Form. Once your project is approved, come talk to us! Humber Applied Research & Innovation actively supports faculty research by providing support as you develop your project proposal, prepare documents for ethics approval, identify partnership opportunities, and apply for funding.


The Ignite Fund enables flexibility to support projects that arise outside of the Cultivate funding periods to address emerging opportunities. All Ignite applications should clearly demonstrate the intention to pursue a longer-term applied research and innovation initiative.

The Cultivate Fund supports Humber employees engaged in original, externally-focused research and innovation by providing modest amounts of funding to employees exploring strategic research or innovation initiatives with an industry, community or academic partner.
