Research Support services in UK Universities

I like to catch up with my reading when I have to travel by train, so the RIN Info Handling Group meeting on friday in London was a good opportunity and appropriately, one of the reports I read was the RIN report on research support services. No real surprises in their findings or recommendations, though they do recommend that libraries review the scope for embedding information specialists into research teams (maybe a bit of an ideal, given the library:research staff ratios!)
I like their simple research lifecycle model, which divides activity into 4 segments: idea discovery, funding/approval, experimentation, results/dissemination. This could easily be used in conjunction with the new 7 pillars model when it is launched in April, I think.
