Welcome to KRIMSON
In line with the University Research and Impact Strategy 2013-16, the University of Kent is investing in a new system called KRIMSON – Kent Research & Innovation Management System On-line. KRIMSON will support the operations of Research Services (RS) and Kent Innovation & Enterprise (KIE) as well as provide enhanced reporting.
The system will collate information on research staff, their publications, projects and proposals, research student supervision, taught course modules, academic expertise, public engagement and other research related activities. It will be in use by RS and KIE staff as well as academic staff, academic managers, researchers and externals.
