Welcome to KRIMSON
In line with the University Research and Impact Strategy 2013-16, the University of Kent has invested in a new system called KRIMSON – Kent Research & Innovation Management System On-line. KRIMSON supports the operations of Research Services (RS) and Kent Innovation & Enterprise (KIE) and also provides enhanced reporting.
KRIMSON collates information on research staff, publications, projects and proposals, research student supervision and other research related activities. It is used by RS and KIE staff as well as researchers, academic managers and administrators.
The system is supplied by Thomson Reuters and is used by many Universities worldwide. After a successful three-month pilot phase, KRIMSON went live University wide in August 2014.
