The Large Hadron-electron Collider (LHeC) is a proposed upgrade of the LHC at CERN. An ERL will provide electrons to collide with the HL-LHC, HE-LHC and the FCC-hh proton beams to achieve centre-of-mass energies 1.3-3.5 TeV and luminosities $\sim 10^{34}$ cm$^{-2}$s$^{-1}$. These large luminosities and the corresponding CC and NC cross sections for Higgs production make the LHeC a Higgs factory. In this talk we present the latest results on the determination of Higgs couplings, both in DIS at the LHeC and the FCC-eh, and in combination with their hadronic counterparts HL-LHC/FCC-hh, pointing out the strong synergies. We also show the implication that a precise determination of PDFs at the LHeC and FCC-eh has on Higgs physics.
