The GOYA Project studies the structure, dynamic, gas content, and stellar population of galaxies at high redshift. Our goal is to understand the physical processes that determined the mass assembly and star formation of galaxies at redshift z>1, the epoch of maximum star formation activity in the universe. The foundation of the GOYA Project is a near-IR spectroscopic survey of 2500 galaxies at z>1 using 30 guaranteed nights with EMIR, a cryogenic near-IR multi-slit spectrograph at the 10.4-m Gran Telescopio Canarias (GTC). EMIR will provide simultaneous spectra of up to 50 objects in a FOV of 6’ x 4’ with R=4000.
