Employment history

Ian Miles graduated in psychology from the University of Manchester in 1969. 

He spent almost twenty years as a researcher at the University of Sussex’s Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU).  He worked on a range of studies, coauthoring major reports and books on world futures, the service economy, information technology innovation, and social indicators - among other topics. 

At the beginning of the 1990s, he joined University of Manchester’s Programme of Research in Engineering, Science and Technology (PREST). He was a director of PREST and a founding director of CRIC, the Centre for Research on Innovation and Competition, also at the University of Manchester. Both PREST and CRIC are now assimilated into Manchester Institute of Innovation Research (MioIR), at Manchester Business School (MBS). He leads studies of service innovation and of foresight at MIoIR.  He is also codirector of the Centre for Service Research at MBS.

 In 2011 he became Head of the newly established Research Laboratory for Economics of Innovation at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, where he spends several months each year.

He has wide-ranging research interests and uses a variety of methods.  Much of his work on technological innovation has concerned new generic technologies - especially  Information Technologies (IT) - and he has been particularly interested in service industries as users and sources of innovation. IT is especially important for these industries, but other technological and organisational innovations are also highly relevant.  Apart from analyses of services in general, he is particularly associated with Knowledge-Intensive Business INGINEUSdimensions, and using tools such as case studies and survey analysis.  He is on the editorial board of R&D Management, the International Journal of Services Technology and Management, and the Service Industries Journal.

Broader interests concern the social and employment implications of changing technology, and the social shaping of technologies; the evaluation of social science and other research programmes; social and other indicators; and Foresight methods and practice.  (In connection with the latter, he is on the editorial board of several leading journals such as Technological Forecasting and Social Change, Foresight, and the International Journal of Foresight and Innovation Policy, as well as journals focusing more on services and innovation issues.).

His work has been carried out for many sponsors, including the Economic and Social Research Council, UK government departments (DTI, DEFRA), foreign government departments and agencies (for example, Brazil, Finland, Luxembourg and Switzerland), international organisations (e.g. the EC's DG Research and DG Enterprise, World Bank, UNCTAD, UNIDO) and private companies (e.g. BT, BNFL) and associations (e.g. the International Natural Fibres Organiosation). As well as producing numerous reports, he has written around 200 book chapters and journal articles, authored and co-authored twelve books and co-edited a further ten. Over 60 reports have been published, with much more as “grey” literature. Much of this material (and more by way of presentations, etc.) can be located online.

He also teaches a variety of courses (mainly connected with foresight, knowledge economy, and service innovation), and supervises MSc dissertations and DPhil theses.  Most of his teaching is postgraduate or executive education.  He serves on a range of Advisory Boards for research institutes in the UK and more widely.

Timetable for today

Full timetable

Foresight and STI Governance no 3, 2017

The special issue of the Foresight and STI Governance journal covers various aspects of innovation entrepreneurship in transition economies

HSE ISSEK Scholars Publish a Book on Foresight for Science, Technology and Innovation

In their new book, Foresight for Science, Technology and Innovation (Springer, 2016), Ian Miles, Ozcan Saritas and Alexander Sokolov introduce the term ForSTI to describe future-oriented analyses, informed by participative processes (to assess evidence, articulate possibilities, and propose actions), that are designed  to feed into STI decision-making. The future considered is usually a long-term one; the issues examined go beyond the purely technical ones; the stakeholders involved reflect the wide spectrum of experience and knowledge relevant to these issues, and the actors whose mobilisation may be required to effect change. The book was presented during recent conference Foresight and STI conference at HSE.

New Book Explores Foresight in Innovation Policy and Management

Policymakers are increasingly turning to foresight techniques for guidance when addressing the wide array of problems and challenges arising in their work. A new book co-edited by Leonid Gokhberg, Dirk Meissner, and Alexander Sokolov from the HSE ISSEK, attempts to add another dimension — namely, opportunities — that can come from proper application of foresight techniques.

On the way to the world standards of education and research

The Centre for Advanced Studies of Science, Technology and Innovation created last year and based at ISSEK is one of the elements of Higher School of Economics’ new architecture that is relevant to the implementation of its competitiveness program. At an event in the Government, Yaroslav Kuzminov talked about how HSE structure and staff are improving.

'My Nickname at School Was 'Professor'. I Had to Live up to It'

Why do people become researchers and pursue careers in science? What is more important for them – self-fulfillment or financial incentives? On the day before Russia celebrated Science Day on Feb 8, HSE’s news service talked to researchers working at HSE about what motivated them to become scientists.

Innovations: a New Elective Course

In April a new all-university elective course on Science, Technology and Innovation: Analysis, Strategies and Policy will be launched at the HSE. It will be delivered in English by leading HSE international professors as well as some visiting experts. Dirk Meissner, Deputy Head of the HSE Research Laboratory for Science and Technology Studies, and one of the authors of the course, told us more about the course, its structure and specifics.

Internationally Renowned Researchers Attracted to the HSE

On June 15th two new international laboratories which are part of the HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge, the Laboratory for Economics of Innovation headed by Ian Miles, and the Laboratory for Science and Technology Studies headed by Jean Guinet, were presented at the HSE.
