East Anatolian Observatory (aka. DAG) is a national project supported by the Turkish Government for building a 4m class telescope which will be working in the optical and near-IR domain. As the tender process has been completed and kick-off to the telescope and the mirror production has been initiated, the project team is looking for possible collaborations for the focal plane instrumentation. This contribution is intended to describe the DAG project and to show its opportunities for a state-of-the-art MOS instrument.
