Poppo of Babenberg (c. 1010 - 15 April 1066) was the Archbishop of Trier from 1047 until 1066.

Eberhard was a son of Count Ezelin of Swabia, and he was educated at the Cathedral of Worms. He was appointed by the Emperor, with consultation with the people of the archdiocese, the Archbishop of Trier. In 1048 he travelled to Rome with Bruno of Dagsburg-Egisheim, the Bishop of Toul, to be confirmed by Pope Leo XI the Arch-Chancellor of Gaul. In 1049 he travelled to Rheims and Mainz to help promote reform in the Lotharingian church.

In 1056 he joined with Archbishop Anno II of Cologne, Duke Godfrey III of Lower Lotharingia, and the Count Palatine Henry I in order to support the empress Agnes of Poitou during her regency. Also in 1056 he finished the construction of the north tower of the Cathedral of Trier. In c. 1060 Eberhard became embroiled in a war with Count Conrad I of Luxembourg, which led to the intervention of Pope Nicholas II. In 1065 he consecrated the Henry IV King of Germany, nine years late.

Eberhard died in Trier in 1066 and was buried in the College of St Paul.
