Innovation mobilizes complex process in which the imaginary intervenes at various levels. If it is difficult for some players to assert who, science or science fiction is the source of innovations, new technology or new product is part of a fantasy that accompanies its invention, its design and diffusion. If science existed before science fiction, the latter is more often cited by companies and organizations when they present or justify investments or strategic policies. If science fiction is the product of industry and science, it has gradually freed from it to offer little or not explored prospects, that are helpful to innovation processes, that use more and more the imagination. The creation of science-fictional narratives from more and more people in organizations will boost a virtuous circle in which science and science fiction will inspire each other even more in order to innovate.
