Varies by project. Vallourec opens its doors so that startups can work in its units of Belo Horizonte, Curvelo or Brumadinho, depending on the needs agreed in the contract to be executed at the beginning of the development phase.
No, they must not. The project will be a proof of concept and not a definitive implementation of the solution in line. So, it must be used only equipments that Vallourec or the startup already have or rent it, depending on the agreement during the contract signature.
