Welcome to the James E. Lynch India & South Asia Business Centre (ISABC), at the University of Leeds. The centre was created in 2004 under the Strategic Research Infrastructure Fund (SRIF) II scheme.  However, it was formally inaugurated by the High Commissioner of India in the U.K., His Excellency Kamalesh Sharma and the University of Leeds' Vive Chancellor Professor Michael Arthur on March, the 22nd 2006.

The ISABC is one of the world's leading university based business centre focusing on the South Asia region. It gives a flavour of the ‘intellectual and cultural buzz' to its audience. With its niche focus on South Asia, the centre offers a friendly and warm welcome to students and businesses originating or moving to south Asia.

The centre has a vivid plan for expansion for the near future and I welcome individuals and organisations, who share similar interest to come and collaborate with us. I especially invite young students to become volunteers and share the centre’s success story.
