Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free survival (PFS) rate at 12 months according to RECIST v1.1 [ Time Frame: 12 months from randomisation ]
    The primary objective of this study is to explore the clinical efficacy of atezolizumab and bevacizumab combined with chemotherapy in patients with EGFR-mutant advanced NSCLC after failure of standard EGFR TKIs.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse events according to CTCAE v5.0 [ Time Frame: from the date of randomisation until 90 days after the last dose of protocol treatment ]
    To assess the safety and tolerability of the treatment.

  2. Overall survival [ Time Frame: through study completion, from the date of randomisation until death, including OS rate at 12 months. ]
    OS is defined as the time from the date of randomisation until death from any cause. Censoring will occur at the last follow-up date.

  3. Objective response [ Time Frame: From date of randomisation until date of treatment completion (until documented disease progression, death or any other causes), assessed up to 2 years. ]
    Objective response is defined as best overall response (CR or PR) across all assessment time-points according to RECIST v1.1, from randomisation until either the end of protocol treatment or the end of follow-up.

  4. Quality of Life Core Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-C30) [ Time Frame: from baseline up to 12 months or until disease progression, whatever is first. ]
    Quality of life will be assessed by the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Core Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-C30). The key QoL outcome is the time to deterioration (TTD) in the QLQ-C30 global health status/global QoL.

  5. Quality of Life lung cancer-specific module (QLQ-LC13) [ Time Frame: from baseline up to 12 months or until disease progression, whatever is first. ]
    Lung cancer associated symptoms will be measured by the lung cancer-specific module (QLQ-LC13).

  6. Extra-cranial PFS [ Time Frame: through study completion, from date of randomisation to documentation of PD outside the CNS, assessed up to 2 years ]
    Extra-cranial progression-free-survival is the time from randomisation to documentation of disease progression outside the central nervous system (CNS) as per RECIST v1.1 or death, whichever occurred first.

  7. Intracranial PFS [ Time Frame: through study completion, from date of randomisation to first documented radiographic evidence of CNS progression, assessed up to 2 years. ]
    Intracranial progression-free-survival is defined as the time from randomisation to first documented radiographic evidence of CNS progression. CNS progression is defined as progression due to newly developed CNS lesions and/or progression of pre-existing baseline CNS lesions.
