The present communication aims to publicize the research project that will begin in 2018 thanks to the financing of the Autonomous Government of the Canary Islands. The general objective is to contribute to the positioning of the Canarian cooperation as a reference in terms of policies of gender equality in the Atlantic-African context. This will be carried out through the creation of a Network between Canarian universities and those of West African countries focused on the design, application and evaluation of equality policies, through the development of innovative collaborative methodologies in university contexts. The participating universities are the University of La Laguna (Spain), the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain), the University of Cape Verde (Cape Verde), the University of Letters and Human Sciences of Bamako (Mali), the University of Nouakchott (Mauritania) and the University Hassan II (Morocco). Through this network, knowledge, experiences and proposals will be shared in the innovative design of equality policies, with special attention to cultural diversity and endogenous proposals. For this purpose, it is necessary to carry out shared diagnostics, which would be the result of collaborative processes, develop materials for joint dissemination and transfer, as well as train specialized personnel in the issues involved. Related to the above, common and shared actions will be carried out to reach the goals proposed in the diagnoses, as well as specific ones adapted to the needs of each institution and country. In a transversal manner, constituting a principle that governs the entire project, the role of universities in each territory will be strengthened in their commitment to public policies and the transfer to the productive fabric of their environments.
