Foundation unanimously awarded the grant for the Grey Matter: an ecology of
integrated health in the city, presented by local partner Elida Mosquera
New York: an ecology of health integrated in the city develops further the
project Grey Matter (Auby, France), which reflects on a new typology of health
open to the city, awarded at the 15th edition of the international Europan

objective of the project is to analyze the concerns about the responses that

of the mechanisms and structures that support these successful models of
integrated health ecologies in the city.
