This lecture will examine the link between fundamental research, inventions and innovations. The talk will discuss the history of Innovations in digital, that will take us from Pascal's calculating machine to the modern era of digital: and this will be the major story of the talk.
It will also be illustrated by the personal experience of the author, in his life as a researcher in statistical physics of complex fluids: and this will be the minor story of the talk.
From these examples, the talk will draw conclusions about the richness and synergies between understanding fundamental science and economic development.
