During the course of the contemporary era's advancements and the escalating significance of knowledge-driven sectors in fostering regional expansion and advancement, the nexus between academia and industry has garnered heightened scrutiny, aiming to bolster education and creativity within industrial realms. The framework of regional innovation system represents a nascent paradigm fostering interconnectedness among the constituents and stakeholders of a given area, thereby facilitating interactive knowledge exchange. This study aims to pinpoint the factors influencing the Regional Innovation System within the educational scope of furniture enterprises situated in the eastern precincts of Tehran Province (specifically Pardis and Damavand Counties) and elucidate its positioning within this framework.
The employed research methodology is the Grounded Theory Method within a constructivist framework (Charmez), involving an unstructured interview conducted with 39 female professionals within the industry, along with 12 employers and regulatory officials, across three distinct stages. The point of theoretical saturation was reached during the 51st interview. Utilizing the MaxQDA software, the interviews were systematically coded in four stages, aligning with the constructivist paradigm. The analysis highlights the significance of learning and knowledge within the industry as the central phenomenon. The outcomes underscore the necessity of establishing a robust connection between the industry and academia to foster business growth and regional development. This alignment can be facilitated through the adoption of the innovative Regional Innovation System approach.
