KMi continues to roll in the external funding and maintain its high hit rate on European projects. Over the past two months KMi has launched four new EU-funded projects worth over £1M to KMi, and representing European initiatives with a combined total value of more than £15M. The projects are a mixture of Integrated Projects (rated highest in their category amongst all competetive bids) and Networks of Excellence.
