Hi Gast,

Personally, I would say ‘learnt’, but ‘learned’ is OK too.

From the Oxford English Dictionary definition of the verb 'learn'; “ verb (past and past participle learned /ləːnt, ləːnd/ or chiefly British learnt /ləːnt/) [with object]“

lessons learnt

As a technical term it means "gewonnene Erkenntnisse" oder "Projekt-Retrospektive", according to the Wikipedia article on "Lessons Learned". (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lessons_Learned).
The general meaning is according to the Online-Dictionary dict.cc "Erfahrungen" or "Erkenntnisse" (http://www.dict.cc/?s=lessons+learned)

Hey Gast,

You can find that in the PONS online dictionary, too:

gesammelte Erfahrungen


(Scroll down to or search for "lessons learnt.")

Just FYI: In the U.S., we (generally) say "learned," not "learnt."
