| Australia is the world's second leading source of innovation in the health sciences, behind Europe and in front of the US. However, due to the limited size of the market, from both a population, talent, and financial resource standpoint, Australian companies quickly have to grow into larger markets. The Indiana Health Industry Forum works with a contractor in Australia to provide export development services and in-market research. Project fees are assessed on an hourly basis. Services are available to members and non-members.|
