The European Academy of Neurology (EAN), in collaboration with European national neurological societies and the Neurocritical Care Society and Research Network, created the EAN COVID‐19 registry (ENERGY) to better assess the neurological effects of COVID-19. The international registry can be used either for patients with suspected or confirmed coronavirus infection and neurologic symptoms, or in addition to another registry that does not focus on neurologic symptoms. The tool — which uses variables selected to facilitate data collection even in resource-poor areas — includes adults with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection who have provided informed consent, with key demographic and clinical findings obtained at registration. Individuals included on ENERGY are followed for up a year for any incident neurological complications. A total of 254 centers from 69 had applied to join the research as of August 19, 2020.
