Q&A: Evidence for Democracy’s Rachael Maxwell on Budget 2021 and listening to the science

Rachael Maxwell, the new executive director of Evidence for Democracy (E4D), recently released an analysis of the federal budget, which noted promising investments in sectors like quantum tech and genomics but argued that the country needs a national science strategy. Maxwell spoke to Research Money this week about the federal budget, why relationships are most important in developing evidence-based policies, and how she views her organization’s role in the science ecosystem.
