The special issue shines a spotlight on Humber’s Centres of Innovation—an essential part of the research and innovation ecosystem that propelled Humber College ITAL’s research ranking to #2 in Canada and #1 in Ontario. Whether it is collaborating with industry partners on transformative projects, shaping the future of business and entrepreneurship or housing North America’s first of its kind Broadcast-Broadband Convergence B2C Lab with an ATSC 3.0 broadcast system and 5G core network, Humber’s Centres of Innovation (COI) are continually pushing the boundaries of creativity and innovation. The new issue of SPARK includes the latest updates from Humber’s COI Network as well as special contributions by Dr. Sharon McIntyre, founder and president of New Cottage Industries & Co., and Tyler Charlebois, Director, Centres of Innovation Network and Partnership Development.
