Frequently Asked Questions

Applied research, so research that solves a specific problem provides a measurable and immediate benefit. All of the applied research and innovation projects we fund involve external partners: industry or community organizations.
This depends on the granting agency and the funding requested. Humber faculty or staff will lead the project and will be completing the application. Contact email@example.com to learn more about how to partner with us on your project.
We can help you turn your idea into a research question. Once your research question has been identified, we can help you identify partnership opportunities, identify funding opportunities, and complete grant applications. We can also assist with the management of awarded funds, student research assistants, risk, project timelines, and financial reporting.

Faculty or staff must have the approval of their Humber Dean or Director before preparing and submitting a funding application.

The Research Assistant Online Tutorial is an interactive and comprehensive training module designed to introduce students to the basic principles of research at large, and working as a Research Assistant (RA) in particular. The tutorial, offered by Humber as a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) through CourseSites by Blackboard, provides an overview of the research process, distinguishes between types of methodology and analysis, and acts as an educational resource for students doing research in class or those hired as RAs for faculty-led research.
All timesheets must be submitted to your supervisor by 12:00 noon on the due date. No timesheet will be approved by Applied Research & Innovation before it has been approved by your supervisor. Your supervisor is responsible for approving and emailing your completed timesheet to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4:00pm on the due date.
