Transferring the processing of the Central AGRIS database from Vienna to Rome

The central AGRIS database had been produced in Vienna during the 90s by a group for more than 15 persons, who processed the incoming data before adding them to the database.
After the decision of taking away emphasis from data processing to capacity building, the AGRIS production was transferred to Rome. Part of the money saved by this operation was used to create positions in the field to support the capacity building fucntions. The challenge was, to go on with the production of the AGRIS database in Rome with incomparable less resources.
