Sterile neutrinos are among the most attractive extensions of the SM to generate the light neutrino masses observed in neutrino oscillation experiments.
When the sterile neutrinos are subject to a "lepton number"-like symmetry they can have masses around the electroweak scale and potentially large Yukawa couplings, which makes them testable at the planned Future Circular Colliders (FCC).
In this talk I present an overview of the sterile neutrino searches at the FCC in its electron-positron, proton-proton, or electron-proton configuration.
Therefore I provide a systematic assessment of the search channels,
give the state of the art sensitivities for the most promising signatures and discuss the synergy and complementarity of the different FCC configurations.
