KRIMSON – the Kent Research and Innovation Management System Online – is the software we use to manage research and innovation funding applications and projects.

All external research and innovation applications have to use KRIMSON, and data from it are used for both individual and institutional reports, and for informing policy. An application will not be approved for submission unless the details of it are on the system.

For help with using the system, or to get approval from your school, please contact the following:

You can log on to the system here, and contact Renata McDonnell for any help and support in using it. Please email
