“Rural Australians are responsible for generating more than 65 percent of Australia's export wealth.” 


The Inland Research Fund supports the growth of inland communities.


The Inland Research Fund was established by the Western Research Institute Ltd (WRI) in 2017.  To date, WRI has donated $100,000 to the Fund.


WRI established the Fund because it believed that there was a need for better research to inform public policy decisions, and to improve the targeting of investment, in jobs, health, education and economic development in inland communities.  


The Fund will identify 'key focus areas', and funding will be allocated in partnership with academics, researchers, health professionals and other regional organisations to undertake research and analysis, and for programs to be developed including leadership training, capability building, tourism and health promotion to facilitate inland social, economic and employment development.
