SPARK is a celebration of Humber’s faculty members, researchers, students and the larger community of partners that ignite the spark of research and innovation. SPARK highlights research projects in five main areas: social innovation, sustainable architecture, system integration, UX experience and the Internet of Things (IoT).
From the latest news on North America’s first Broadcast-Broadband Convergence (B2C)  Lab at Humber to new developments in research funding to spotlights on Rock Star Researchers, SPARK features stories of exploration, innovation and collaboration. Through SPARK, we hope to stoke the spark of curiosity in everyone at Humber, one issue at a time.
