As a result of a large difference in the structure between the different classes of target bioactive compounds and their natural sources, their physical and chemical properties differ. Therefore, it is very important and necessary to find the most efficient method of extraction of selected bioactive compounds and then optimize the extraction procedure. Conventional extraction techniques still use harmful organic solvents, while in recent time, innovative green techniques (such as supercritical/subcritical extraction, ultrasound-assisted extraction, microwave-assisted extraction etc.) which enable better extraction yield, better quality of the extract, and resource saving (time, solvent, etc.) are increasingly used [1,2].

Special emphasis in this presentation will be put on the possible commercial valorization of the research results and on the transfer of those results to the application level [3], as well as on strengthening the relationship between the academic community and the industry, developing the economy, and creating a positive social impact.
