HumberLaunch has just soft launched the Humber Research and Innovation Archive, a database of research projects completed by Humber faculty, staff and students.

HumberLaunch is an entrepreneur program that provides training and resources to students and alumni who have a potentially successful business idea.

The program helps to guide students in the right direction on how to get their business up and running.

Projects in the new archive range from surveys and polls to video game development and dream home models, with all materials to soon be available to the public.

‘’It’s about sharing what we have done and what we are still doing here at Humber,’’ said Humber Research coordinator Amanda Brown.

The idea for the archive originated from the Humber Research Ethics Board. It took six months to build.

“The archive was something that the office knew there was a need for,’’ said Laura Keating, Humber Research facilitator.

The online development of the database was completed by Humber Web Development graduate Joanna Kommala, while former Humber Research assistant George Tam completed the data entry.

HumberLaunch is currently revamping its website before it officially launches the Research and Innovation Archive.
