The Ibero American Network for Digital Preservation of Sound and Audiovisual Archives start to work in research activities in 2019 under the sponsorship of the Iberoamerican Programo of Science and Technology (CYTED).The main goal if RIPDASA is to incentive the link beetween researches and professionals of the sound and audiovisual archives in Iberoamerica around digital preservation in order to mitigate the risk of loss of this cultural heritage and to ensure its access to future generations. The RIPDASA is coordinated by the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) and has the participation of the Universidad de la República de Uruguay, The Universidad Andina, Sede Ecuador; Universidad San Martín de Porres, Peru; The Universidad Complutense de Madrid, the Universidad de Chile, The Universidad de Bahía of Brazil, as well as the Universidad Uniagustiniana of Colombia. WeAreAVP was also part of this initiative. This initiative is unprecedented in the region because of all the assets that exist, the most forgotten are the sound and audiovisual. The risk of loss of heritage is not only the analogue archives that have not been digitized but also those of digital origin. There are few research groups, especially in Latin America. This instead of being a weakness is a strength because based on the situation of each country, the experience and knowledge accumulated around digital preservation will design solutions that are suit to each social context. During 2019, the RIPDASA will focus on the identification and diagnosis of the audio and audiovisual Archives of Ibero-America.
