Conference and Study Centre

Conference and Study Centre floor plan

Enabling people-to-people communication and contact across the globe.

Through the partnership with the Center, you demonstrate your social responsibility and support to the development, protection and maintenance of the written cultural heritage and treasures.

Our conference center in Skopje offers comfortable conference room with a capacity of up to 75 people and a studio with the latest video conferencing technology to a capacity of 25 people, which allows you to hold meetings with participants in different places..

The Conference and Study Center (CSC) is a result of a long-term strategic partnership between the National and University Library "St. Kliment Ohridski "- Skopje and the British Council - Macedonia and it operated through joint ventures from December 2005 to December 2011. The National Library independently manages and organizes events in CSC from the beginning of 2012.

CSC can be used extensively in many areas for lectures, presentations, promotions, workshops, seminars, video conferences, distance learning and other activities related to the young people and the EU, and all in order to exchange and enrich knowledge. CSC is open to all citizens and groups from governmental, business or civic sectors.

What is videoconferencing?

In addition to traditional approaches, the Conference Center offers modern studio for video conferencing. Video conferencing is a form of communication that integrates video link and speech. Video conference technology brings people face- to-face in real time with sound and image from remote locations. Also, they can use this technology for sharing documents, delivering presentations and providing training.

Why use video conferencing?

There are many benefits of using video conference.

  • you can communicate more regularly with people in other districts or countries, which would otherwise be costly or difficult to travel to and from
  • opportunity to hold video conferences with more people compared to meetings where all of them will have to attend, because every side uses its facilities
  • video conference communication and meetings are often much shorter in total as no travel is involved A meeting that might take you away from work for several days (due to travel) may take only one or two hours using a video conference
  • Video conferencing saves money because it reduces costs - no need for all the costs involved with travel, food and tickets.
  • Telephone calls or e-mails are not always the best way to communicate with others. Interactive meetings can help generate ideas, and enable people to react to each other more spontaneously.
  • Video conferencing allows collaboration by real time document sharing. People in different areas can work on a single project and make contributions.
  • Many institutions can participate simultaneously, thus gaining a much greater level of involvement. For example, a lecture broadcast to students at different educational institutions.
Wider benefits of video conference communication

Our offer of video conferencing communication helps in the following:

  • to improve your learning experience and to support you by connecting you with other students in different geographical regions
  • creates and develops a useful dialogue with the institutions of the United Kingdom that export education
  • maintenance and development of electronic projects
Our partners and clients talk about working with us ...

We have worked with hundreds of people in the past, across many sectors and interests; forging relationships that can continue and providing excellence in service. Here are just a few of those we have worked with, and what they say about our role in their professional lives. Just want to express my gratitude to each of you for all your assistance in putting together the ILPE program which just completed today. Seven VCs with so many sites was really a herculean task for you to pull together and manage, and we could not have been successful in this without your help and dedication.

 On behalf of Pearson Longman we would like to thank you for your help and support during our Loyalty seminar 14.02 at your premises. Both room and technical support were more than appropriate and the warm and hospitable attitude you showed is beyond any expectation. We hope to co-operate in the future and to have many nice events together.

Natalija Elenskaia Kocovic, Pearson Longman Regional Manager

 Regarding the seminar on EU competition law, organized by International Law Development Organization (IDLO), the Italian Government and The World Bank, held at the Conference and Study Centre in Skopje, with our greatest pleasure we would like to express our gratitude for the technical support of the workshop.  Without your professionalism we could not have had successful implementation of the seminar.

Ljubica Ruben, Mens Legis Law Firm

 Just to say that I was really pleased with the facilities on offer at the Centre. It might be added that I sprung the whole idea of a film lecture very much as an after thought! All the staff were really helpful working beyond the call of duty.

Nigel Clarke, Composer, UK

 The video link that I established through the Conference and Study Centre enabled me to make the first visual meeting with a renowned foreign company, which played a very positive and important role in the first phase of the communication. After that, with one additional communication I managed to achieve my goal and currently work as a commercial director in the Company. I thank you for your professional assistance.

Hristo Dzinlev, Dipl.Pharm.

 Relying on the excellent and skilled partner and on the remarkable Centre’s facilities and services, our efforts were immensely eased before and throughout the presentation of our programme to the Macedonian NGO/CBO community. We are looking forward to cooperate with you and your Centre in the very near future.
