According to the press release issued by the Directorate of Press and Public Relations of Near East University, Prof. Dr. Mustafa Sağsan expressed that all organisational and administrative problems were due to lack of necessary information; and that in order to resolve organisational problems there was a need for ‘access to information’.

Prof. Sağsan: “Intellectual capital in local managements has a positive influence on institutional value and therefore raises the institutional reputation”
During the seminar, Prof. Dr. Mustafa Sağsan provided details on how public data can be converted to information in local managements. Furthermore, he provided insights on how implicit information could be uncovered and added to intellectual capital and pointed out that intellectual capital had the potential to raise the reputation of an institution by raising its value through the presence of intellectual capital. Moreover, he described how abstract concepts such as patents, commercial brands and copyright could be added to local institutions and informed the audience on how these may be benefitted in municipalities. At the end of the seminar, it was stated that Vice Head of Municipality of Yıldırım, Togay Yılmaz, who obviously got positively influenced by the seminar made a promise and proposed that those who apply for a patent design to their Municipality Management by the end of May 2018 will be awarded with a double salary and a trip to Northern Cyprus for a week’s stay.
