Faculty Research and Innovation at Humber

Humber Applied Research & Innovation works with faculty members to apply classroom learning to industry and community need. This can happen in a number of different ways: industry, community or not-for-profit partner-driven capstone projects can provide students with valuable skills and relevant work experience; projects funded by one of Humber's internal research funds enable faculty members to pursue their own research interests and engage students as active members of the research team; externally funded projects allow faculty members to stay actively involved in their field, cultivate industry partnerships, and provide intensive work experiences for students.  


Applied Research & Innovation helps faculty members form new partnerships, especially interdisciplinary collaborations, and explore innovative ways to enhance curriculum. Ideas can start with a sketch on the back of a lunchroom napkin or with a blue-sky conversation at an event or trade show.
