The Dutch Onderzoeksredactie Tabak (Tobacco Investigations Desk) started on 1 March 2017. It received its funding from the Dutch Journal of Medicine Association. Being a temporary project it ended in October 2018.
The editorial staff decided to expand ORT into a non-profit organisation for investigative journalism. For this purpose a new foundation De Onderzoeksredactie (The Investigative Desk) has been set up. We expect to kick off in the coming months.
